Funding for postgraduate taught programmes

Students commencing postgraduate study will need to secure the majority of funding before beginning their studies. 

We have some funding opportunities available, please see below for more information.


Postgraduate Master's Loan

The UK government is offering a Postgraduate Master's Loan to UK and EU nationals (conditions apply). Find out how to apply.

ESRC studentships

If you are interested in studying for a master's (MSc/MRes) followed by a PhD, you can apply for a ESRC studentship.

These studentships are associated with the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP), a consortium of universities in the south west. The Partnership benefits from the leadership and research knowledge available from five institutions, and builds on the success of the SWDTC, with over 200 ESRC funded researchers.

For some research topics, there may be scope to be considered for support under an interdisciplinary pathway. For example, the Advanced Quantitative Methods pathway may be relevant for those interested in certain kinds of applied research, or in statistical methodology. For more details of the interdisciplinary pathways, please see the SWDTP website.
