PGR Cost of Living Bursary
We understand the challenges posed by the increased cost of living in the UK especially over the last year. As a response, the University is pleased to offer a non-repayable Cost of Living Bursary to eligible PGRs who are in need (subject to a successful application).
Academic fees are charged at the start of each academic year, or on the annual anniversary of your start date, and are paid as part of registration.
If you're in financial difficulty while you are a student with us, you may be able to apply for support from the University to help with living expenses.
If you hold a scholarship or studentship from the University, you may receive maintenance payments, also known as a stipend.
