The Cranfield Postgraduate Loan Scheme (CPLS) is an exciting new funding programme providing affordable tuition fee and maintenance loans for those who are accepted onto full-time, technology-based MSc courses at Cranfield University.

The scheme, launched for 2014 courses, is designed to support UK and EU students entering postgraduate study and is intended to attract those who may not otherwise progress to this level because of financial constraints.

There are up to 100 loans available each year, for those who have an offer of a place from the University to study a full-time MSc at Cranfield in a STEM (science, technology, engineering or mathematics related).

This scheme has been designed as a not-for-profit scheme initially funded by HEFCE and Cranfield University and operated by Prodigy Finance Ltd.

Applications to the loan scheme for those starting their studies in 2014 have now closed. If you have an offer of a place for a course starting in 2014 and would like to discuss your funding options please contact our Admissions Team:
