Applicants with other qualifications, research or professional experience will be considered for admission on an individual basis, although they may be required to register for a diploma in the first instance. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL paper-based test score : 600 TOEFL iBT® test: 100 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

A good way for you to start exploring your masters funding options is to ask staff in your subject area for advice on how previous international students have financed their studies.

You should also contact the ministry of education or education department along with the British Council office in your own country. The location of your nearest British Council office can be found on the British Council website.

Before you start your search for funding you should consider the following:

Funding opportunities are very competitive and are generally given to students that have achieved outstanding academic results and submitted high-quality applications.

The application process for funding opportunities can start very early in the admissions cycle, so you should start looking for funding opportunities 12 to 18 months before you intend studying.

If you need a visa to study in the UK you will need to prove to the immigration officer that you are able to meet both the tuition and living costs which may take the form of bank account information and/or a letter confirming sponsorship.

Our funding opportunities database contains details of the major international student award schemes offered by the British government and other organisations, as well as a number of awards offered by the University and its Faculties and Schools.

In addition, funded studentships attached to specific research projects are advertised in more detail on academic School websites. Some of these studentships are not available to international students, and you should check your eligibility before making an application.
