If you require a Tier 1-5 visa to reside in the UK (this includes a Tier 4 student visa), you may not be able to enrol on a part-time programme at the University.

Kingston University has carefully considered the Tier 4 visa route and has decided not to offer Tier 4 part-time study. Tier 4 sponsorship is only available to students studying on a full-time course.

Money Matters guide

Our Money Matters guide also provides details on paying your fees and includes information on instalment plans and guidance for employers/organisations if they are paying your fees.

It contains useful information on how and where to receive financial advice.

Kingston University is pleased to offer a 10 per cent discount on full-time and part-time postgraduate degree course tuition fees (including PGCE courses) to our alumni.

Social work bursary

Bursaries may be available for some full-time students following the qualifying Master of Social Work (MSW) programme.

The Department of Health has a bursary scheme for students taking the Master of Social Work programme, but not all students receive bursary funding. The Department of Health requires the university to rank students for bursary funding, and we do this on the basis of the scores obtained in the written test and interviews which are part of our selection process.

For more detailed information please go to the NHS bursary website.

If you are starting a course at Kingston, you will be able to apply for a loan of up to £10,000 to study for a postgraduate masters degree.
