While studying for a Masters you'll have two main costs - tuition fees and living costs.

There are two types of funding: loans (which have to be paid back) and scholarships and bursaries (which do not have to be paid back).

Equivalent or Lower Qualification (ELQ) Information

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) no longer provides funding to Higher Education Institutions to teach students who are studying for a qualification that is equivalent to, or lower than, a qualification which they have already achieved.

Please note that public funding for courses will not be available to the following categories of students:

  • Those classified as Home for tuition fee purposes wishing to undertake an undergraduate or postgraduate (taught) programme of study which leads to the award at an equivalent or lower level than a qualification already held.
  • To determine if you are within the ELQ category, please compare the highest qualification you currently hold against the qualification you are applying to study for, noting that if you have studied for, but neither completed nor gained the award for which you were registered, then such study is not relevant for the purposes of ELQ classification.


If you fall into any of the following categories, ELQ classification does not apply:

  • You are classified as 'Overseas' or 'Student Route Visa' for tuition fee purposes
  • The qualification for which you wish to study is a Foundation degree
  • You are in receipt of the Disabled Student's Allowance (DSA)
  • You are on a full-time undergraduate course which leads on successful completion, to registration with the Architects Registration Board (ARB)
