Understanding how to access different types of postgraduate funding can be confusing – but we can help. Our dedicated funding webinars will help you get to grips with UK & international funding & scholarship opportunities, and you can chat directly with universities to find out what they can offer. PLUS, all fair attendees will receive a copy of our 2021 Funding Guide after the event to read at your leisure.
For extra information and advice, you can join our webinars on a variety of subjects including studying abroad, PhD research proposal writing and Masters application tips.
The fair on Tuesday 27 April will focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics & Medicine subjects. Attend on Wednesday 28 April if you’re interested in Business, Management, Law, Art, Humanities and Social Sciences subjects. Once in the fair, you will be able to use a keyword search to see which universities have Masters and PhDs in the subject(s) you’re interested in.
You can join any time throughout the fair but make sure you leave plenty of time to chat to all the universities you want to before the fair closes. You’ll be able to download any information and conversations you have for future reference.
It’s completely free to attend, but you’ll need to register before to secure your place and ensure faster entry into the virtual study fair on the day. Once registered you’ll receive more details about how to log in and join the fair.
