Postgraduate Taught Programmes

The UK and Welsh Governments have confirmed that EU students commencing their studies in the academic year 2021/22 will be classified as international students. As such, EU students will no longer be eligible to pay UK fee status or have access to funding through the Student Loans Company.

At Swansea, we wish to support EU students that will be affected by this change in status with an EU Transitional Bursary for those who join us in the academic year 2021/22,. The bursary will be awarded as an automatic discount to tuition fees and will reduce the fees to the same level as UK tuition fees for those that are eligible. This will apply for the duration of your course.


Key eligibility details include:

  • Available to those studying full 180 credit eligible master's courses. 
  • Must be ordinarily domiciled in an EU country*.
  • Must be an EU applicant that has been classified by the University as an international student for 2021/22 entry fees purposes.
  • Full-time and part-time courses are eligible.
  • Applicants will not be able to combine the EU Transitional Bursary with any other scholarship that Swansea University offers.
  • The following courses are not eligible
    • MSc Social Work
    • MSc Physician Associate Studies
    • MSc Nursing (any branch)
    • MSc Advanced Computer Science with Industry
    • MSc Computational Engineering with Industry
    • MSc Electronic and Electrical Engineering with Industry
    • MSc Materials Engineering with Industry
    • MSc Mechanical Engineering with Industry
    • PGCE Secondary programmes

Full terms and conditions will be added as soon as available


Each bursary is worth the difference in price between the international and UK tuition fee. For information about the course fees, please visit the Postgraduate Taught Courses page.
