There are a large number of funding schemes which support graduate students, including scholarships, studentships, awards, bursaries, grants and loans.
Furthermore, some students are fortunate to be sponsored by their employer, while others may combine part-time study with part-time work.
Competition for all scholarship funding is intense, and where awarded on the basis of academic excellence, applicants are normally required to have, or to expect to achieve:
- A first-class UK Bachelor’s degree or,
- an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
Students requiring funding are advised to investigate potential sources of funding at least 12 months before the relevant academic year so as not to miss scholarship application deadlines.
The cost of living while studying a graduate programme at UCL is estimated at around £20,000.
This figure is intended as a guide and includes accommodation, food, travel and other day-to-day costs, all of which vary.
