To qualify for funding, you must be studying a course that we fund and meet our residence eligibility criteria. We may also take into account any previous study.


We provide support for courses at Postgraduate Diploma and Masters level.

We do not offer support for courses at PhD/ Doctorate level. Students undertaking these courses may be eligible to support from a Research Council instead.


From session 2019-2020 courses will be eligible for support if they are taught or research based and delivered at a publicly funded institution. This includes eligible courses delivered via distance-learning.

Full-time Postgraduate Diplomas must be no longer than one year in length and full-time Masters must be no longer than 2 years in length.

We also fund students on eligible courses in the rest of United Kingdom, as long as the same course is not available in Scotland.

Further information regarding MSc Educational Psychology at the University of Dundee is available here.


You must meet our normal residence conditions to be eligible for funding for a postgraduate course.

Previous study

If you have previously studied a postgraduate qualification (including PGCE/PGDE, PG Diploma or Masters level course) and received financial assistance from UK or EU public funds, you may not be eligible for a loan to pay your tuition fees.

Full-time students who are not eligible to the tuition fee loan on previous study grounds can apply for the living cost loan only. Students must be studying an eligible full-time course and meet our residency eligibility criteria.

If you are unsure if you are eligible for support based on your previous study please contact us
