Bank loans

Your own bank may offer loans. Banks sometimes prefer to finance vocational courses and you may be required to demonstrate that the programme of study will improve your long-term career prospects (and ability to pay back the loan).

Working whilst studying

Employer sponsorship

Some employers may offer financial support for part time study, but usually only where employees have proved their value and for study that relates to their work. It is not usual for companies to sponsor students who are not their current employees.

Part time study

Some of our programmes are available on a part time study basis enabling students to combine work and study.

Claiming benefits

Part-time students may be eligible for housing, council tax and other benefits. As the rules are complex, we advise checking with your local benefit agency. Full time students do not normally receive benefits, but may be eligible for exemption from Council Tax.

Notes for EU and international students

You may be eligible for some of the funding sources listed, eg for School of Informatics scholarships, but may find you do not meet the residency requirements of others.

Generally, you will need to explore sources of funding in your own country and the scholarships and bursaries available from the British government (via other governments). These sources of funding are usually applied for through your own government, not from within the UK and will have closing dates for application. For information, contact:

  • The relevant Education ministry in your country
  • British Council office in your country
  • British Council Education Information Service
