The costs of attending university are an investment in your future career.
Some courses have additional costs involved which are not included in the tuition fees. These could be for things like study materials, field trips and visits, work placements, protective equipment and uniforms or membership of relevant organisations (for example, professional or regulatory bodies associated with your area of study or career progression).
However, you should be aware that there many external sources of funding your studies (from those designed to support tuition fees to those dealing with cost of living and childcare support).
Please note that for some courses there may be additional costs involved which are not included in the tuition fee advertised. These could be, for example, for study materials, field trips or equipment. Course leaders will be able to provide detail of any additional costs.
You can apply for scholarships and bursaries from UWS, the Government, research councils, funding bodies and employers to financially support your studies.
We offer a wide range of scholarships to our postgraduates, including both home/EU and international students. The University is committed to supporting students and rewarding academic excellence.
For a full list of scholarships including eligibility criteria and how to apply, please see our Scholarships and funding page.
Scottish and EU students can apply to the Students Award Agency for Scotland (SAAS) to have tuition fees paid by the Scottish Government.
Rest of the UK students can apply for financial assistance, including a loan to cover the full cost of the tuition fees, from the Student Loans Company.
Tuition fees for Overseas (non-EU) students are guaranteed for the length of your course. This means that the tuition fee you pay in your first year (shown above) is the same fee you will pay for each year of your course.
For more information please view our complete listing of all ongoing fees for our postgraduate courses.
