Graduate Grants - Where To Get Funding For Post-Grad Study

If you are currently a student at a university in the U.K., you will be aware of how expensive studying at a university is. Going to university is not cheap, regardless of whether you are planning on just taking a degree course or whether you are planning to do a post-graduate course as well. If you are planning to do a post-graduate course, graduate grants can help to fund something that may otherwise be inaccessible.

A lot of students only think as far as their undergraduate course and plan their finances accordingly. What could come after is not something that many tend to focus on. When the time comes to graduate your course, you may realise that you want to further your study. While post-graduate courses are a great option, they are not exactly the most affordable thing in the world. Some graduate courses do come fully-funded, but most require you to get the support you need yourself.

While some people take time out from studying to save up enough for a post-graduate course while they work, others may opt to finance their course with grants if they're stuck with a low income. Grants for graduates who want to continue studying can be used to cover transport, tuition, housing and course material costs.

Post graduate grants are not only available from student financing companies, they are also available from a number of trusts, charities and societies. Contact relevant charities, societies and trusts in your local area to see whether they offer any funding opportunities.
