We have a range of scholarships on offer to help you with funding your Masters study.

Alumni bursary

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary. If you think you’re eligible, you need to contact the School’s admissions team.

Postgraduate Masters Loan

If you are a UK or EU national and plan to start a full-time, part-time or distance-learning taught or research Masters course, you may be able to apply for a government-backed loan.

Leeds Masters scholarship

The Leeds Masters Scholarships aim to encourage students from under-represented groups to embark on a postgraduate qualification. The Scholarships are funded by the generous donations from our alumni through the University of Leeds Footsteps Fund and are for UK students paying postgraduate tuition fees at the UK rate. 

Sanctuary Scholarships

We are pleased to offer scholarships for forced migrants to the UK. The Sanctuary Scholarship is open to people who wish to study any undergraduate, postgraduate or research degree.
