Postgraduate funding

The majority of students who pursue postgraduate education usually support themselves through student loans, private savings, family support or sponsorship from an​ employer. If you would like to learn more about funding options, our Money Advice team will be happy to help. You can contact them at or call 01242 714535.​

Postgraduate loan scheme

Students applying for taught and masters courses can benefit from a non means-tested loan​. If you’re studying for 2, 3 or 4 academic years, the loan will be divided equally across each year of your course. The loan will be a contribution towards the costs of study and paid directly into your bank account. Whether the loan is used towards fees, maintenance or other costs will be at your own discretion.

How to apply

  • You can apply online.
  • If your application to the University of Gloucestershire has been a little last minute, don’t panic! The application deadline for a one year course is nine months from the first day of your academic year.​
  • All applicants must be final year undergraduate students with pass rate normally expected to progress onto postgraduate study. Students should be ‘self- funding’ and not those who are taking up employment and whose fees may be paid by a company sponsor
