Fees, finance and scholarships

Undertaking a postgraduate degree is a major investment in your future.

Fees for courses vary, with some funding available through scholarships, loans and employers.


Tuition fees can be found on our Fees and Financial Support pages.

Fees cover the costs of your registration, teaching, assessment and operating University facilities such as the library, IT equipment and other support services.

When you accept the offer of a place on a course you are accepting responsibility for the payment of your tuition fees.

Details of how to pay your tuition fees, including instalment plans, are on our Fees and Financial Support pages.

Additional costs

Some courses have additional costs for field trips or equipment. These are indicated on individual course pages.

Bradford is generally thought of as one of the least expensive cities in the UK for students to live in.

As well as paying for postgraduate study yourself, you may be able to get funding through studentships, bursaries, grants, loans or your employer. The government is introducing a postgraduate loan of up to £10,280 for students starting their Master's course after 1 August 2016. 

You'll also find lots of useful links on the Government's Funding for postgraduate study website.

If you're applying for a Faculty of Health Studies Specialist Skills and Post Registration Development (SSPRD) module or course, you may be able to access funding through Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber.

There's more information on the Faculty of Health Studies website.
