With the exception of teacher training there are no mandatory awards from the Student Loans Company so if you wish to undertake postgraduate or continuing professional development (CPD) study you will need to pay for your tuition fees and your living costs.

It is a significant financial commitment so it is important to plan your funding well in advance. Most postgraduate and CPD students fund their studies through a mix of sources: savings, earnings from part-time work, small grants, bursaries and loans. Some are supported in part or in full by their employer.

Please see the information below for the range of financial packages on offer from the University of Bolton to assist and support you in your postgraduate studies.

Please note that eligibility for a Scholarship or Bursary does not equate to entitlement, and all information is correct at the time of publishing. Please be aware that some changes may occur before or during the academic year.
