Funding

Sponsorship from your employer

Many students receive financial support from their own employers. As you study by distance learning you can continue with your studies while you work, and do not need to take time away from the workplace. See the employers section on our website for guidance for employers.

Other sources of funding

The level of competition for sponsorship and educational awards is extremely high, so we recommend that you investigate funding early. Do not delay in making an application as in some instances an offer of a place can be advantageous in a funding application.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.

The Global Study Awards: get funded with up to £10,000 to study abroad

Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
