Scholarships and Funding

You may be entitled to a number of scholarships and funding opportunities to aid your postgraduate study of chemistry at Lancaster.

Postgraduate loans

In November 2015 the UK Government confirmed that a new postgraduate loan scheme will be introduced for students commencing Masters courses in the 2016/17 academic year.

Non-means-tested loans of up to a maximum of £10,000 will be available to taught and research Masters students.


Scholarships and bursaries

The University has committed £3.7m to scholarships and bursaries, with 400 students per year being entitled to these.

Faculty scholarships cover your full tuition fees, as well as providing you with a generous stipend and access to a research training grant.

Generous travel grants are also available, allowing you to attend conferences, workshops and seminars relevant to your PhD.


Industry funded PhDs

Our 80 industry-focused PhDs will allow you to undertake intensive research and development on a specific research project to underpin the development of a new product or service, using this work as the basis of your programme of study. Undertaking an industry-funded PhD could give you a tax-free stipend of £15,000 per year, have your tuition fees subsidised by your partner business, and put you in an enviable position to begin a long-term, well paid career.
