Funding & financial support

Postgraduate study at City University London is an affordable option for students from wide-ranging backgrounds. Although you will usually have to pay for postgraduate study yourself, many sources of funding exist, including scholarships, studentships and professional development loans. And during your time at City you can get financial advice and support from our award-winning Student Centre.

Postgraduate scholarships

As well as University Scholarships, some of our individual Schools and departments offer their own scholarships.

University Doctoral Studentships

Fully-funded, full-time, three-year Doctoral Studentships are available to a limited number of outstanding students. To find out if you might be eligible, contact your School, department or centre.

The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding

The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online is all about alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (for fees as well as maintenance costs) to any student thinking of going into Postgraduate study, regardless of subject, or nationality.

This guide is FREE for all City University students and staff to use.

Read an extensive list of charities providing funding for Postgraduate study.

Prospective students

If you are a prospective student, then please contact us to request a free copy of this guide, which includes details of many charity organisations that offer funding to postgraduate students.

Professional and Career Development Loans

If you are unable to get funding from scholarships, studentships or other sources, you can apply for a professional and career development loan. These loans are to help you pay tuition fees and living expenses.

US Federal Aid

City participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct Loans) which can provide funding to cover your tuition fees and living expenses, subject to approval by the Student Centre.
