Funding for international (non-EU) students
There are a number of funding sources that you can apply for to help with the cost of course fees and living expenses. The funding available often depends on your personal circumstances and on the course you plan to study.
Details of our University scholarships for 2019 entry are currently being confirmed. More information will be available soon.
A good starting point when researching funding opportunities is to contact your local British Council office. They can provide up-to-date advice on what is available for your country and you can search for scholarships online.
We also recommend that you start to research funding opportunities 12 to 18 months before you intend to start studying, as deadlines often fall early in the admissions cycle. In order to be eligible for most scholarships you will need to have an offer for a place on a Masters course.
Fee discount for York graduates: if you've completed an undergraduate degree at York you could be eligible for a 10% Masters fee discount.
