Funding and scholarships

We offer a number of scholarships to help support you while you're studying with us, and will consider flexible fee payment options if you're studying part-time or through online learning. The application deadlines for funding are often earlier than the application deadlines for our courses, so you'll need to keep this in mind when applying.

Many funding opportunities ask you to submit a supporting statement with your application. This should focus on your relevant academic and professional achievements, and how your development would be supported by studying with us.

Kate Skellington MA Applied and Professional Ethics (Online Learning)

View profile for Kate Skellington
I regularly have to consider ethical practice in the collection and analysis of research data. I thought it would be interesting to engage with new material and new ways of thinking in ethics, to contrast with my training as a psychologist. The philosophical content of the course was a real attraction compared to other similar degrees on offer.
