7 KEY THINGS TO
KNOW ABOUT
FUNDING YOUR
POSTGRADUATE
STUDIES
1

BE FLEXIBLE. Financial assistance
for postgraduates comes in various
forms. Some are administered by
the university and others by external
agencies and donors. Be sure to
investigate a range of options.
KEEP THOSE MARKS UP. Most
postgraduate awards are based on
academic merit, with only a few
available for financial need alone.
PLAN AHEAD. Start looking for
funding opportunities well in advance.
Opportunities for funding are often
announced months before the deadline
to register for your degree.

Criteria for funding eligibility in a nutshell
1
To qualify for postgraduate funding,
prospective postgraduates must first
apply for an academic place. Remember,
you can apply for a research master’s
by full dissertation or PhD at any point
during the year.
2
Only students registering for
honours, master’s and doctoral
degrees are eligible. Students who
register for postgraduate diplomas and
certificates, the BArch, the LLB, or for
the fourth year of any bachelor degree
are not eligible for postgraduate awards.

Students who intend to study
for a second degree at the
same level as one they already
hold (e.g. a second honours degree)
are also not eligible.
