Funding your postgraduate study

If you’re looking for a scholarship or bursary to help fund your postgraduate course, you’re in the right place; you can search for scholarships by subject, course type and university. For more information about sources of postgraduate funding and managing your money, see our Ultimate Guide to Postgraduate Funding.  In 2014 we launched our own bursaries to help postgraduate students fund their dreams.  Click here to see their applications and read their stories.  We have put the 2015 bursary applications temporarily on hold while we look for a partner to help us reach more students and provide even more funding. Stay tuned for the re-launch later this year.
