Government funded places

The University has 10 government funded places available for trainees looking to start this programme in September 2019. You must be ordinary resident in the UK and meet all other essential eligibility criteria outlined on the Association of Educational Psychologists website. We strongly recommend that you check your eligibility for this scheme and that you meet essential entry criteria prior to starting an application.

The funding will cover your tuition fees for all three years, plus a bursary in year 1. In years 2 and 3, trainees will receive either a placement bursary or salary. This will be confirmed to you at an appropriate point.

Home/EU self-funded applicants

To be eligible for a self-funded place, perspective trainees must have applied for a Government-funded place and been successful in reaching our reserve list for that year of entry. Due to data protection laws, candidates must also apply via the UEA application system.

For information on fees for September 2019, please see our Postgraduate Fees table for Home/EU students. Financial support is available for this programme and the Postgraduate Doctoral Loan scheme is also available to applicants studying on this programme. The Doctoral Loan scheme allows UK and EU trainees to borrow up to £25,000 to help pay for your fees, living costs and other expenses.

Self-funded applicants must meet the same entry criteria as those applying for a Government-funded place. Applicants must have applied for a Government-funded scheme place and successfully reached our reserve list. As such, all self-funded applications are assessed against the same criteria and must go through the same selection process as those applying for a Government-funded place.

Other costs

Please be aware that all trainees will be required to undertake satisfactory health checks and Disclosure and Barring Service checks (DBS). Applicants are responsible for associated costs to both health and DBS checks.

In addition, trainees will need to cover costs related to living expenses, travelling to and from and within placements, books and other associated programme costs (e.g. printing, stationary, etc.) and optional AEP and/or BPS trainee membership.
