Postgraduate fees and funding

In considering the financing of a postgraduate degree at York, an important point to bear in mind is that York is a relatively inexpensive place in which to study. Rents for University accommodation are among the lowest in the country, and single overseas students who apply by the due date of the application are guaranteed accommodation for the duration of their course. Information about the complete range of awards offered at the University is available on the Postgraduate fees and funding page.
