The Cranfield Postgraduate Loan Scheme (CPLS) is a funding programme providing affordable tuition fee and maintenance loans for those who are accepted onto selected full-time master's courses at Cranfield University. Read more Read less

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

There are a number of loans available each year, for those who have an offer of a place from the University to study selected full-time master's courses at Cranfield.

This scheme was designed as a not-for-profit scheme initially funded by Cranfield University (with an contribution from HEFCE) and is operated by Prodigy Finance Ltd.

The application website for those who wish to apply for a loan to fund their studies starting in 2018 is now open.
