Student Finance England & Wales Loans
MSc & MArch students may be eligible for a Postgraduate Loan to cover both tuition fees and living costs via Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales (MSc students only). For more details, please see our Postgraduate Loans Tipsheet. These loans are currently only available for people who are normally resident in England or in Wales. Unfortunately Scotland and Northern Ireland have confirmed that they are not currently offering postgraduate loans for courses from alternative providers like CAT.
MArch Sustainable Architecture students may be eligible for a professional undergraduate loan. Please see our MArch student loans tipsheet for more information.
For students to be eligible for this funding, they must be studying a designated course. Courses at alternative providers like CAT are designated each year by the Department for Education. We have made an application for our courses to also be designated for the 2019-20 academic year. We expect this process to be completed in early 2019.
You will find most of the information you need through the relevant websites.

Bursaries and other funding opportunities
The Sir John Houghton Bursary
Thanks to a generous donation from Sir John Houghton, CAT is able to offer an annual bursary of £4,500 to a promising postgraduate student who demonstrates that they have an excellent academic record and a passion for tackling climate change.
Sir John has had an illustrious career as one of the world’s most eminent climate scientists, including being co-chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Scientific Assessment Working Group and a former Chief Executive of the Met Office.
A long-term supporter of the work of the Centre for Alternative Technology, Sir John says: “I have spent a lifetime studying the atmosphere and the climate and latterly have been concerned with the reality of human induced climate change. I now want to help the next generation tackle this serious problem, possibly the biggest the world faces.”
Applications for 2019 entry are open. The bursary application deadline for 2019 is yet to be confirmed. We will release the date here shortly.
CAT students may also be eligible to apply for external sources of funding:
