Funding a Masters

Our courses are open to both self-funded and employer-sponsored students.

If you are self-funding your course, you can choose between two payment plans. You can either:

  • pay your fees in one payment at the start of your course
  • pay for each module as you study.

There are several funding options available for postgraduate students joining the University of Sussex, including the UK Governments Master’s Loan, which may be available to students who live in England.
