Increased financial support has been announced for Scottish students undertaking research masters courses at EU universities.

Tuition fee loans of up to £5,500 and living cost loan support of up to £4,500 will be made available to Scottish postgraduate students on research masters courses from September 2019. This builds on finance previously offered to taught postgraduate courses and distance learning postgraduate students. EU postgrad research students can also apply for the tuition loans.

The Scottish Minister for Higher Education Richard Lochhead said:

“The Scottish Government is committed to making higher education as accessible as possible.

“Research students in Scotland are working on the cutting edge of modern thinking. This expansion in funding will allow more students than ever before to pursue postgraduate study without financial barriers. This includes EU students, whose interests the Scottish Government is committed to protecting in light of Brexit.”
