Students who excel academically or who need extra financial support may be able to apply for a bursary or scholarship to help them with their studies. There are various scholarships available, including those targeted at people in the local community, those to support refugees and those which can provide financial aid to students who excel in sports or other specialist fields.
As well as internal scholarships provided by the university for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, there are external trusts and funds that students can apply for, which all have varying requirements. Students can learn more and see how to apply for this extra financial help on the USW website.
Course fees differ depending on the course and length of study. This is even more true for a postgraduate degree because the type of learning and chosen field have a large impact on how much it will cost.
A typical Masters degree will normally cost £9,000 for a full-time year, with part-time fees varying. International students’ fees will be higher, usually around £14,000 per year.
The fees for research degrees are different, with the MPhil in Writing costing just £3,800 for the first two years and then £1,900 per year after that. PhDs are a little more expensive at £4,407 per year or £2,203 if a student chooses to study part-time, with international fees for PhDs set at £15,000 per year or £7,500 part-time.
