Other Scholarship Competitions

UK/EU Students

There is strong competition for scholarships and early application is essential. For certain scholarship competitions, the procedure is for ITS to nominate which applicants it wishes to put forward for consideration to the awarding body. Our nomination in these cases is based primarily on academic merit (degree result and references), but relevant previous experience and other factors may also be taken into account.

Other funding sources

Tuition fees for our taught postgraduate degrees are reviewed on an annual basis. Fee information is available on each individual course page. Visit our Masters homepage to find your course.

Course fees cover tuition, use of library and computing facilities but not books, accommodation or the optional European Field Trip. Students wishing to attend European Field Trip as advised to allow a minimum of £500 for accommodation and travel during the week-long trip.

Part-time fees are payable in each of the first 2 years, irrespective of the number of years taken to complete the programme. Students who complete during their third year of part-time study (as recommended for Masters programmes) are also subject to an annual registration fee (approx. £190) at the start of year 3 and any subsequent year. Fees for the part-time Certificate programme assume a period of study of no longer than 12 months.

All fees must be paid before a student can register. Self-financing students may pay annual fees in two instalments - the first is payable at enrolment and the second in late January. Students who are supported by their governments, employers, or other sponsors should provide a letter from their sponsor addressed to the University confirming that the fees will be paid directly. Sponsors cannot pay by instalments. All fees are reviewed annually and are subject to increase. Further information is available from the How to Pay page on the University's Student Administration website.

Starting a new course or adapting to life in a new country can be both exciting and challenging. We understand the importance of finding the right living environment to help you settle, study effectively and enjoy a good social life. Leeds has plenty of accommodation for students, both University owned and private sector. This represents good value for money and reflects a lower cost of living than London and much of the south of England. For further information please visit the Accommodation Office.
