Fees and funding


Tuition fees are updated on an annual basis; the latest fee information can be found on the university Study pages. This page is particularly useful because it also includes information about how to calculate living costs, which will help you create a budget for your time as an MA or MPhil student.


Funding is one of the biggest challenges when considering postgraduate study, which is why Warwick is working to increase the number of scholarships every year. The Graduate School offers advice about finding funding, as well as a list of current scholarship opportunities, on their funding advice pages. This includes important information for Home and EU students about the Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship Scheme as well as the government's Postgraduate Student Loan scheme (you can also find a helpful loan FAQ at FindAMasters) as well as Personal Development Loans. You may also wish to search the International Office's funding database to see if you are eligible for any opportunities listed there. We are also pleased to confirm that Philosophy is participating in the GREAT-India scheme this year.

Departmental scholarships

In addition to these opportunities, the Philosophy Department will award 5 full tuition scholarships to fund postgraduate study in 2018-19 on any of our MA programmes or year one of the MPhil programme:

  • 1 award at the full Overseas tuition rate
  • 4 awards at the full Home/EU tuition rate

This competition is open to all full-time applicants applying to start their MA or MPhil (2+2) in the Philosophy department in October 2018. The awards will be granted according to academic achievement and how well your research interests align with the research portfolio in our department. Because women are under-represented in this field, female candidates in particular are encouraged to apply.

How to Apply
  • Submit your MA or MPhil application no later than 9 February 2018.
  • Submit your scholarship application no later than 9 February 2018 by email to Melissa Venables.
  • Submit your supporting documents (transcripts, writing sample(s), personal statement, and references) no later than 23 February 2018.
  • Shortlisted candidates may be contacted by the Director of Graduate Studies for a brief interview.

If you have any questions about applications or scholarships, please contact Rachel Harrington in the Philosophy office.
