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 Master's where the normal overseas fee is £23,000 (overseas), they have previously studied the DTMH at LSTM and qualify for alumni discount.  They are successful in winning a Merit Scholarship (£10,000).  The net fee is therefore £13,000.  The 20% Alumni discount is then applied to the self-funding component. (20% of £13,000 = £2,600).  Applicant A is self-funding and is required to pay £10,400.
      2. Applicant B wishes to study a Master's where the normal home fee is £10,500 (Home).  Applicant B is eligible for the Northern Progression Discount which is 20% off the tuition fee = £2,100. The net fee is therefore £8,400.
      3. Applicant C wishes to study a Master's where the normal overseas fee is £23,000.  Applicant C has full scholarship funding from an external organisation covering full fees.  No discount applies for fully sponsored students.
