There are many ways you can source the funding you need, including the government postgraduate loan scheme for UK students.
There is also support available in the form of BU scholarships and bursaries from external providers. We also offer tuition fee discounts in some circumstances, so make sure you explore all of your options. If you are not sure what fees you should be paying, read our working out your fee status page.

See all the ways we and our Students’ Union (SUBU) are supporting our students financially, including the SUBU Community Kitchen, Soup-er Mondays and warm spaces on campus to relax and study.
