Funding, scholarships and loans We want to ensure that you know about the main sources of funding available for your studies at QMU. It is important to recognise that access to postgraduate funding can be complex and so it is essential to consider your funding options fully prior to committing to a course of study. These pages cover the current funding sources but these could change and it is important that you consult our website at www.qmu.ac.uk/ study-here/fees-and-funding/ scholarships-for-new-students/ Postgraduate loans Scottish & EU students A postgraduate student funding package of up to £10,000 is available.
