As you may be aware, the government has confirmed in the recent announcement following the 2015 spending review that it plans to introduce a new system of postgraduate loans for masters students in the UK for the 2016-17 academic year. They will provide up to £10,000 a year for taught and research Masters courses in all subject areas. We will provide additional information about how the scheme will operate as it becomes available, but in the meantime some additional information can be found on the Higher Education Funding Council for England website at,107221,en.html

Details of all available funding opportunities at King's College London can be found on the postgraduate funding database.
