External Sources of Funding
The level of competition for scholarships is generally very high and prospective students are encouraged to investigate sources of funding early on.
The following website provides detailed information about sources of postgraduate funding:
UK Government Postgraduate Loan
A new system of postgraduate loans (PG Loan) for UK Masters degrees was introduced in 2016. Loans of up to £10,000 are available for eligible students, paid in three equal instalments across the academic year.
A number of eligibility criteria apply, including previous study, age, residency and location of study. Please note that even if students meet all other requirements, they can only be eligible for a PG Loan if they complete at least 50% of the programme in the UK. This means only students who choose to take the second term options at Queen Mary in London will be eligible for the loan.
Further information on eligibility and application information is available from https://www.gov.uk/postgraduate-loan/overview
Loans for US Students
US students studying at ULIP are not eligible for US Federal Loans but can apply for a private loan from Sallie Mae. Students applying for a private loan need to notify ULIP Student Services for further instructions to ensure their loan can be confirmed.
