Additional costs for M.Sc. Tropical Forestry Study Tour

Students registered on M.Sc. Tropical Forestry must also fund their travel to the country where the tour is taking place, cover their visa, immunisations and other related costs as well as their in-country costs (in-country costs are typically €1,000 for two weeks).


Postgraduate Loan

Postgraduate loans of up to £10,000 are available to applicants who reside in England to help them with the cost of postgraduate level study.  The terms of the loan specify the following with regard to part-time study:

Part-time courses:  If your course is longer than one year you can get up to £5,000 in your first year and the rest in your second year. If you're studying part time you can only get payments in the first two years of your course, even if it lasts for three or four years.

Part-time Distance Learning: For courses where there are equivalent full-time courses, the distance-learning course must be completed within 24 months in order to meet the 50% intensity requirement. However, if the course does not have an equivalent full-time version, the distance learning course must be completed within 36 months.
