“Winning a scholarship made me feel like I was ready for my Masters. It boosted my self-esteem—NTU think I can do it—so I felt like I definitely could! Winning it felt great. I was so glad I took the extra couple of hours to try to win one. My family are very proud and I know they're happy for me—even if it’s led me to the other side of the world. Without the scholarship I'm not sure if I would have been able to afford studying internationally. Being able to do this has given me the best opportunities for my career. Getting the scholarship has reminded me that I’m capable of doing challenging assignments and being the best that I can be.”

Chrystina Rogers, MSc Forensic Psychology, USA.

Tuition fee loans for EU students

EU tuition fee loans Erasmus + Masters loan scheme (France and Spain)Postgraduate loans

As an EU student, you can apply for a loan from the UK government to help with tuition fee costs. If you applied through UCAS you'll get a tuition fee application form from them.

The loan will depend on such factors as where you live, your course, where you're studying and whether you've studied a higher education course before.

You can't apply for maintenance grants or other living expenses loans unless you satisfy the UK residency requirements. However, some help may be available from your home education authority so we advise you to approach them directly.

If you're from France or Spain (or if you're an EU student resident in France or Spain) you can apply for a tuition fee loan to help with tuition fee costs for postgraduate studies.

A loan of up to €12,000 is available for a one-year Masters degree and a maximum of €18,000 for a two-year Masters degree. You can apply directly with BPCE in France or Microbank in Spain. The decision to award a loan depends on the bank concerned.

Eligibility depends on factors such as where you live, your course, where you are studying, and whether you've studied a higher education course before. If you've already received an Erasmus grant during your first degree you can still apply for an Erasmus+ Master Loan.

The UK Government has introduced a new postgraduate loan scheme for the 2016/17 academic year. You can borrow up to £10,000 for the purpose of completing an eligible postgraduate Masters qualification.
