Your master’s fees will cover the cost of your study at the University as well as charges for registration, tuition, supervision, examinations and graduation.

Payment of tuition fees will also entitle you to membership of The University of Manchester Library, the Students' Union and the Athletic Union.


If you require funding for your master’s course, you should begin looking as soon as possible.

There is less funding available for master’s courses than for either undergraduate degrees or PhD programmes. In order to fund your studies, you will need to undertake careful research – the options available to you will differ, depending on whether you’re:

  • a student from the UK;
  • an international student (including the EU).
