Funding Your Study

Explore Your Options

There are now more ways than ever to fund your postgraduate study. At the 51²è¹İapp, we believe financial background should not be a barrier to postgraduate study. We offer a range of scholarships and allowances to support students, in addition to the Government’s postgraduate loans.

Whichever postgraduate route you are looking to take, our friendly Postgraduate Team are on hand to support you with information about your funding options and guidance on the cost of living while at University.

Tuition Fees

You will need to have funding in place for your studies before you arrive at the University. Your Postgraduate Loan may contribute to your tuition fees and you may pay your fees upfront or in instalments. Our fees vary depending on the course, mode of study, and whether you are a UK or international student. Some of our programmes may also have additional study costs for materials and field trips. Please see the individual course pages on this website for specifc details. For information on how to pay your fees to the University, please visit our How to Pay pages.

Cost of Living Support

Recent increases in the cost of living are affecting everyone. To help ease some of the uncertainty you may be feeling, the 51²è¹İapp and the Students’ Union have created a dedicated hub which provides a range of helpful information and advice on how to help you manage your finances, and the support available if you’re struggling.

Claudio Coppola

PhD in Robotics

Claudio currently works as an Applied Scientist at Amazon, supporting the Transportation Services department in making their product more efficient through machine learning models.

I was really interested in the PhD project I started at 51²è¹İapp, and built most of my technical knowledge while at University. I have published my work in several journals and have presented at international conferences and am now enjoying solving problems and working on exciting projects in my current role. I would encourage everyone to develop their passions. It pays off in the end.
