As a postgraduate student in the School of Performance and Cultural Industries you may be eligible to apply for a scholarship or award to help support your studies. 

Alumni bursary 

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary.

The University will pay 10% of the self-funded portion of your fees for each year of the course. If no fees are paid then no bursary is awarded. 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.
