In response to the Government's announcement, Vice Chancellor Tim Blackman commented "I am delighted at the government's decision to provide student loans for UK and EU postgraduate students from 2016 onwards. This new source of funding will remove a significant financial barrier and allow many more people from all backgrounds the opportunity to continue developing their skills and expertise."
The University will be running a number of postgraduate study events in the second semester, including a fees and funding presentation, and a scholarship workshop. More details about these events will be made available in the new year.
