Finances and funding FAQs

Applicants on our joint courses (MSc Global Mental Health, MSc One Health and MSc Veterinary Epidemiology) will follow the policies of the lead institution. Please check their website for information on fee payment.

What is my fee status and will I have to pay the Home or Overseas tuition fee rate?

Once you have submitted your application, the Admissions team will make an assessment on your fee status. You will be informed of the outcome of this assessment if you are sent an Offer of Admission. 

Please note, we cannot confirm your fee status before you have made an application.  Your fee status will be determined in accordance with our fee assessment policy (pdf). 

What financial evidence is required?

UK/EU (Home) Students
If you are being sponsored for your studies, we require a letter of sponsorship from the sponsoring organisation on their official headed paper. This letter of sponsorship needs to indicate the amount and duration of funding. 

If you are paying your own tuition fees,  you do not need to supply any additional financial evidence.

Overseas Students

Overseas students requiring a Tier 4 Student visa will need to submit financial evidence that meets the Home Office’s requirements along with their CAS request.  Please check the School's visas and immigration webpages for further guidance.

Overseas students not requiring a Tier 4 Student visa will need to supply a letter of sponsorship if they are receiving funding.  Self paying non-Tier 4 Student visa holders will not be required to submit any additional financial evidence.

What scholarships are available?

Details of all of the School's available scholarships can be found on our funding webpages.
