Master's fees and funding

Find information on master's tuition fees and studying costs, as well as funding and scholarships available to help you plan your finances.


Your master’s fees will cover the cost of your study at the University, as well as registration, tuition, supervision, examinations and graduation.

You'll also have membership of The University of Manchester Library, the Students' Union and the Athletic Union.

Like other universities, we charge different fees depending on whether you’re classed as 'Home' or 'Overseas' for tuition fee purposes. Detailed information on how we assess your tuition fee can be found on our Your tuition fee status page. 


There is less funding available for master’s courses than for undergraduate degrees or PhD programmes, so you should begin looking as soon as you can.

To fund your studies, you will need to undertake careful research. The options available to you will differ depending on whether you’re a UK or international student.
