Become the one who widens their career options
Did you know that 82% of our postgraduate and PhD graduates are in graduate-level employment or further study within 6 months of graduating? (DHLE Survey of 2016/17 leavers). Now that you are close to graduation and thinking about your future options, why not consider continuing your studies with us by studying a postgraduate degree?
Each year, we offer a generous support package of scholarships, bursaries and studentships to newly-qualified postgraduate applicants. Last year we awarded scholarships and studentships to a total of over £10 million. This year we will be making a similar investment to support the next generation of postgraduate students.

January starts and accelerated programmes
Following the January start date announcement in June, we’ve now added accelerated and intensive options to give you extra flexibility. This means, for some courses in Finance and for certain LLMs, you may be able to choose to complete your programme next September, even if you start in January. These are packed programmes, intended for students who are keen to get on with their careers, and are willing to engage in a very intensive course.
We announced at the start of June that 30 of our most popular programmes now have a January start option. These programmes are the same length as those starting in September, but provide the option of starting in January. Have a look at our January 2021 page to see if one of these could be for you.
Funding your Master’s
There are a number of sources of funding available for Master’s students for 2020-21 entry. These include competitive Queen Mary scholarships in a range of subject areas such as our UK BAME Studentships in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Queen Mary Global Excellence Scholarships (PG) and our Associate Alumni Bursary, as well as external sources of funding.
In our specialist Welfare Adviser’s blog you can find out how to plan your funding for postgraduate study.
There is also the Master’s Loan that you can apply to if you are an English and EU student starting your course in 2020/21 worth up to £11,222 which you can use towards your course and living costs. Find out your eligibility and how to apply.
