External Taught Masters Funding

The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online can help you find alternative sources of funding, like charities. These sources can make awards for fees, maintenance or research cost to any student, regardless of subject or nationality. The Guide contains a database of funding opportunities, comprehensive guidance and tools to help you prepare a winning grant application.

We encourage applications from students who have secured or are in the process of securing sponsorship from external funders.
