Organising your finances

Financial support and planning is a key issue for postgraduate students. Find out what support is available to you.

Funding your study

We recognise that our students all have different financial circumstances, and planning how to fund both your tuition fees and your living expenses differs from person to person.

Our Funding and Financial support pages will give you details of the various options open to postgraduate students in funding their study.

Postgraduate Loan Scheme

You may not be aware that the government has recently announced the Postgraduate Loan Scheme which may help in providing additional funds to help along the way.

Future Finance

Private providers such as Future Finance can also offer a commercial loan to help cover either fees, living expenses or both.

Paying deposits and fees

We aim to provide as clear advice as possible about the process by which you will need to pay your deposits and fees.

Fees are usually paid in two instalments: 50% (minus the deposit) at registration and 50% in January. Fees can be paid online (as part of online registration) or by cheque in GBP (£) sterling.  Cheques must be made payable to 'City, University of London'.  Please write your student ID number on the reverse of your cheque and post it to: The Income Team, Room G101, Gloucester Building.  The income team are available from 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.
