Alternative sources of funding

Finding the funding that's right for you

If you're not eligible for a postgraduate loan from the Student Loans Company, or would prefer to continue your studies without further borrowing, there are other funding options to consider. The information on this page will help you to find alternative sources of postgraduate funding. 

The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding

The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding Online is all about alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (fees, maintenance, research costs) to any student regardless of subject, or nationality.


It contains a huge database of funding opportunities, comprehensive guidance, and tools to help you prepare a winning grant application. Swansea University has purchased a licence to the Guide, and so you can access it for free.


How to access: Email alternative.funding.guide@swansea.ac.uk and we will send you an email with how to get access to the Guide.
