Financing your Masters

We know that choosing to pursue a Master's programme is an important decision, and a substantial investment in yourself.

In addition to the costs of tuition, you should also consider the costs of living in London during your studies and the lifestyle choices that will determine your costs.

Many of the students on our Master's programmes fund their studies through multiple funding sources, combining personal resources with education loans and scholarships.
