British university tuition

Hello people of the pit,

next year I want to do a research master in GB so I can do a PhD after it. One of my teachers adviced me to look into the London School of Economics, but their research track would cost me 20.000 pounds (for year 1). How the hell do British students pay for this? I would be willing to loan, but my government doesn't have loans for more than 6000 per year.

My second choices are going to Germany (free) or going to Exeter. I would however prefer London and be willing to loan a lot for it, so any input on how to get that money would be appreciated.

NEW QUESTION: WHO ACTUALLY HAS BEEN IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS?

Scholarships mostly I think.

However, I'm surprised at £20k a year.

Check the website funderfinder to see if you can get a loan. If your grades at undergrad were good enough you can get a bursary from the university.


Otherwise, no chance. Postgraduate qualifications are for the middle classes in the UK.

I am middle class. No way that my parents would pay 400-500 for a room per month AND pay 20k tuition + food.

It's a research master, so I will do that when I am done with my MSc. I didn't do a bachelor in the same subject so I don't know if I can get anything decent. Aren't there any government/private part loans that are popular?

I only pay £3000 a year, but that's probably because it's still an undergraduate course. 20k seems like a big leap though.

That is crazy. Have you looked at other unis to see if the price is consistent?

The top universities have the same fees. The program in places like Exeter is totally different though (no advanced classes in the first year), that's why I would prefer this track. With the stuff on the site and from my own government I would be able to loan like 12000-13000. Not nearly enough as I also need to eat.

EU yes. Currently doing my MSc in the Netherlands, but I need a MPhil or Research master to continue with a PhD. In the Netherlands that would cost me 18000 euros over 2 years, so I thought: might as well pay that bit extra and go to one of the best universities in the world. Because it wants all money in year 1, I have no way to get that though it seems.

Most people I know who did that usually got some sort of sponsorship from a city company they were going to end up working at or had been working at for a bit.

Or they got a personal loan/got their parents to get out a loan.

As much as I despise the place and it's primary subject, I'll admit LSE is the place to go for economics.

Well it's obvious that if you're going to a premiere university you'll be paying premium fees. Your best bet is to try to get a sponsorship or bursary, or both, and then fill the rest with a loan.

Well 25k for LSE and 18k for Amsterdam. Big difference if I want to get a good place to do my PhD or research later in life.

Do you people think I would be able to get this money together some way or another?

What theguitarist said.

Most people look into sponsorship from companies who pay towards (if not all) of the postgrad.
