Sources of support for postgraduate students are limited, although the University offers a range of partial studentships for both home and international students.

Postgraduate Taught Student Awards

A range of awards, scholarships and bursaries are available for those undertaking postgraduate study at the University. See our Postgraduate Scholarships and Financial Support page for more information.

International Students

Our international students are either self-financed, sponsored by their governments or via scholarships. The University of Liverpool administers and participates in many scholarship schemes for international students. The majority of the scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit rather than hardship and students must normally hold an offer of a place on a course before they can apply.
