Applicants will need to arrange their own funding. UK residents can apply for Postgraduate Student Loans for master’s level projects. EU citizens may also be eligible.  Please check the government website for up-to-date eligibility criteria. Self-funded applicants will also be considered. Applicants should ensure they have sufficient funding for the duration of the programme.

Tuition fees will be payable until the thesis is submitted for final examination. For further information see Home / EU Fees and International Fees.
