Postgraduate studies are a big investment.  Bath Spa University has a wide range of funding possibilities to explore.

Funding for UK/EU students

Postgraduate loans for Master's degrees

If you start a full-time or part-time master’s course after 1 August 2016 you can apply for a Postgraduate Loan. You’ll be able to borrow up to £10,000 to pay your fees and help with living costs.

You’re eligible if you: 

  • are under 60
  • ordinarily live in England

It doesn’t depend on personal or family income.
