Funding for Studying

Artquest does not carry information on funding sources for Higher Education - BA, MA or PhD courses.

The main funders of post-graduate courses in the UK are the Arts andf Humanities Research Council (AHRC), who have an annual application deadline.  Funding can only be considered after a confirmed place has been offered at a UK Higher Education Institution.

Until September 2012 BA degree level courses are funded through a student loan provided by the Government (for English students) or a grant for Scottish students.

Your Higher Education Institution may also have bursaries or grants which you may be eligible to apply for, at any level of study - contact their student services or registry for information about this.
