Your funding package

Unlike undergraduate funding, postgraduates fund their studies in lots of different ways

As a postgraduate, there could be a range of funding options available to you. In this section we highlight some of the most common sources of funding:

Contact a student advisor

Before you begin at Liverpool John Moores University, we recommend you contact one of our student advisors for expert financial advice and guidance.

Student Support Fund

Unexpected situations and financial hardship

The Student Support Fund is intended to help students who are experiencing unexpected situations, such as a broken washing machine, or financial hardship, such as supporting a child.

You do not need to be completely without funds to apply.  We advise that you apply for the Student Support Fund before you are in financial difficulty.

Priority is given to students who:

  • are in their final year of study
  • have children or caring responsibilities
  • have an ongoing health condition or disability

However, all students can apply and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


To apply for the Student Support Fund, you will need to complete and return the Student Support Fund form. The form will be available once you have enrolled at the University in the new academic year.
