Postgraduate funding and fees
£8.5m Scholarship Fund
At Kent we value our postgraduate students and the contribution they make to the University and the wider intellectual community.
We allocate over £6.5 million from our own funds and attract an additional £2 million to provide a variety of financial support opportunities for postgraduate students. These range from a generous number of research student scholarships, through to location specific-funding, sport and music scholarships, and funding specifically for overseas fee-paying students. We also have a Graduate Teaching Assistantship Scheme whereby postgraduate research students receive financial support in return for teaching.
The Graduate School Scholarship will be offered in the 2013 academic year to 2013 Kent graduates who earn a Bachelor's degree with honours (or undergraduate Master’s degree) and register for a self-funded postgraduate degree at Kent by 1 October 2013.
Deadlines for scholarships vary but all applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered for awards.
Postgraduate fees 2013
We are in the process of updating all our 2013 fees information and hope to have this completed in the very near future. Meanwhile you may find the following useful for standard fee taught and research programmes.
- The basic rate of tuition fee for 2013 for home fee paying students on standard fee postgraduate taught programmes leading to a Master's degree will be £4950.
- Fees for research degrees are expected to be only slightly increased on the 2013 fees which were
- home fee paying students: MPhil/PhD £3,900 (2013)
- overseas fee paying students: £12,030 for non-laboratory programmes (2013)
There are a number of premium and non-standard programmes with different fees, the fees table gives an indication of these but is not a definitive list. If you are unsure of the fees for your chosen programme please contact the appropriate academic school.
