We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 22 November 2017. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Hi, I’m interested in applying for a research masters in chemistry and was wondering how you pay for the fees. Are you still able to get student finance for masters courses?
Thank you very much for your question. You can pay for your fees in a number of ways. At the moment you cannot get student finance for a research masters (MSc by Research), but you can for a taught degree. The best place to look for funding is our PG funding database. This can be filtered by fee status, level of study, subject and nationality.
I hope that helps,
Hello, I would like to apply for Creative Writing, and would like to ask – I am a double degree student, with one of the degrees being taught in English and the other partly in English and partly in Czech; do I still need to get the English certificate to prove my knowledge of the language? Thank you.
If you have already been instructed and assessed in English at a recognised institution in a majoratively English-speaking country, you may be exempt from the English language requirements. For full details please visit our website.
I hope this helps.
Hello, is it possible to apply for entry in 2019?
Thank you for your question. The applications for the academic year 2018/2019 have now opened.
If you are looking for a September 2019 start, you are nice and early, but I’m afraid you will have to wait for another year.
Hope that helps,
