Postgraduate loans and scholarships

Postgraduate courses are vital if you want to expand your skills, further your knowledge and improve your career prospects. Over 5,500 students choose to study postgraduate courses with us each year, and we know why. Our quality courses, prize-winning lecturers, excellent employability records and outstanding student support help them succeed.

Financial considerations are obviously important. We're delighted to announce that the Welsh Government is now offering postgraduate study loans. The University of South Wales also offers a limited number of scholarships.

Find out more by visiting us at our open evening on 24 January, where you can talk to our expert finance team. 


Postgraduate loans are now available to help you with the cost of your studies. Students from Wales and the EU may be eligible for a loan from the Welsh Government.

Students from the rest of the UK may also be able to apply for a loan. Visit our postgraduate funding web page for further information.


UK and European Union graduates with a first or upper second class honours degree (or agreed equivalent qualifications) can apply for a non-means tested scholarship worth £1,500 or £2,000. The scholarship applies to eligible full-time, taught Masters courses at the University of South Wales starting in February 2018. 

The University of South Wales is currently confirming its scholarships for September 2018/19. Once these have been finalised, full details will be available on our money website.
