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

The scheme, launched in 2014, 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 a set number of 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 funded by Cranfield University (with an initial contribution from HEFCE) and operated by Prodigy Finance Ltd.

The application website for those who wish to apply for a loan to fund their studies starting in 2017 will open soon.
