Postgraduate taught funding


Kilburn Scholarships

We're pleased to announce the availability of 3 Kilburn Scholarships, at £5,500 each for Home fee status (UK / EU) students.

The scholarships will be awarded to students joining our taught masters courses in September. 

The Kilburn Scholarships are in memory of Tom Kilburn, who in 1948 designed and built the world's first stored program computer here in Manchester. They are awarded on academic merit to UK/EU students who we believe have the skills and aptitude to help the School build on Kilburn’s legacy of achievement and innovation.

All students are considered for funding when they apply, therefore there is no need to complete a separate application form. Those students with exceptionally high grades stand a better chance of being awarded. Note that there are three Kilburn Scholarships this year and the final decisions will be made in July.


Manchester Master's Bursary

The University of Manchester is offering 100 bursaries for master's students, each worth £3,000 in funding, to UK and EU students who will be starting taught or research master's courses in September 2018.

The bursaries are aimed at widening access to master's courses by removing barriers to postgraduate education for students from underepresented groups, so you will need to meet a number of criteria to be eligible for the award. Further information can be found here.

Please note that the deadline to apply for the Manchester Master's Bursary is Wednesday 31st May 2018. 


Postgraduate Loans

Postgraduate loans (PGL) are available from the UK government to eligible UK/EU applicants starting taught and research master’s courses this year. Further information on this scheme can be found on the University's PGL pages.
