How to find funding for your Post-Graduate course


Thinking of undertaking some further study? FindAMasters knows that further study can be advantageous and can really improve your long-term employability, but one (or even four) years without funding can be a huge burden. Because of this, they are really keen to encourage as many students as possible to take advantage of funding opportunities.

This year their scholarships are bigger and better than ever, with £12,000 of Postgraduate Scholarships available to students who will be starting Masters or PhD study in autumn 2015. This will be broken into one £5,000 Masters scholarship, one £5,000 PhD scholarship and four £500 prizes for either Masters or PhD study. Applications for these scholarships will be opening in April and you can find out more information about these scholarships by visiting the website here:

FindAMasters have also produced an online guide to the HEFCE Postgraduate Support Scheme to help prospective Masters students’ find out more about the £10,000 bursaries for study at English institutions in 2015 (including a preliminary allocation of 15 awards at the University of Cumbria).

Good luck with your future studies!
