Postgraduate taughtFees & funding

It’s important to find out about postgraduate funding as soon as you’re thinking about applying for a course.

For information about scholarships and other sources of funding for postgraduate students, go to our scholarship & funding opportunities search.

Students who are ordinarily resident in Scotland

Strathclyde students coming to study a Postgraduate Diploma or Masters level (including MRes or MPhil if the Masters is not a component of a PhD degree), may be eligible to apply to SAAS for a tuition fee loan of £7,000 and a living cost loan of £6,900.

Full-time Postgraduate Diplomas cannot take longer than one year to complete, and a full-time master’s cannot take more than 2 years to complete.

See the SAAS Postgraduate funding guide for more information about courses and student eligibility.

PGDE Primary or Secondary Education

Students studying the PGDE receive the same funding package as an undergraduate student. See our undergraduate funding page for more information.

Scottish students should apply through SAAS for funding.

Social Work courses

Awards for postgraduate social work courses in Scotland are the responsibility of the Scottish Social Service Council (SSSC). Visit the MSW Social Work course page for more information.

Students from the European Union

The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university, and we're proud to attract talented students from the European Union and around the world to study with us.

Now that the UK has left the EU, students from the European Union will no longer be eligible to claim home fee status in relation to university tuition fees. At Strathclyde, we recognise the additional financial implications for our current applicants from the EU.

We're therefore delighted to announce our EU Transition Scholarships to support full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students commencing taught courses from August 2022.

The scholarships will be available to those EU applicants who would have previously been eligible for Home (Scottish/EU) fee status but, because of Brexit, will now be classified as being eligible for international fee status.

Our EU Transition Scholarships support full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students commencing taught courses from August 2022.
