Frequently asked questions

What does wholly self-funding mean?
You are self-funding if you are paying all of your tuition fees yourself. This includes support from a friend or relative or in receipt of a career development loan or Postgraduate Loan from the Student Loans Company.

What does partially self-funding mean?
This means you are in receipt of partial funding towards your studies. This funding can include:

1. Funding from your employer
2. Partial Fees paid for by a third party where you have applied for funding (Company, NGO, Charity, External Scholarships, etc…)

How does this work? Please see examples below:

      1. Applicant A wishes to study a MSc where the normal overseas fee is £22,500 (overseas), they have previously studied the DTMH at LSTM and qualify for alumni discount.  They are successful in winning a Merit Scholarship (£10,000 fee discount).  The net fee is therefore £12,500.  The 20% Alumni discount is then applied to the self-funding component. (20% of £12,500 = £2,500).  Applicant A is self-funding and is required to pay £10,000.
      2. Applicant B wishes to study a MSc where the normal home fee is £9,850 (Home/EU).  Applicant B is eligible for the Northern Progression Discount which is 15% off the tuition fee = £1,477.50. The net fee is therefore £8,372.50.
      3. Applicant C wishes to study a MSc where the normal overseas fee is £22,500.  Applicant C has full scholarship funding from an external organisation covering full fees.  No discount applies for fully sponsored students.
