Fees and Funding - Postgraduate

Tuition fees

Our postgraduate fees are payable at the beginning of each academic year, or at each stage of your programme. Please note, we review our fees every year. 

Funding for UK students

Studying a postgraduate degree could be more affordable than you think.


Postgraduate student loans for masters degrees in the UK are now available. So if you’re considering studying one of our postgraduate courses you could be eligible for a Government loan.

Unlike the undergraduate loan, this loan is not means tested. This means that your household income is not taken into account to determine the amount you can borrow. As of August 2020, you can apply to borrow up to £11,222 to be put towards your tuition and/or living costs. The amount is paid directly to you so you can use it however suits you best. Repayments on the postgraduate loan begin in the April following your graduation provided that your income is over £21,000 per year.

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS). Escape Studios (part of Pearson College London) is registered with the Office for Students and our Master’s programmes are eligible for funding.
