Funding & Financial Support

There are a number of funding and financial support options available to students on our MA Filmmaking or MA Screenwriting programmes. UK or Home status students who are due to start their studies at LFS might want to consider applying for a Postgraduate Master’s Loan.

We encourage prospective students to investigate all funding and financial support options and would suggest that you start with the below:

Applicants might also want to explore options included in The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding, a website that lists alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (fees, maintenance, research costs) to any student regardless of subject, or nationality. If you have applied for the MA Filmmaking or MA Screenwriting programme, you can email us at to receive the access PIN.  

Please also see specific information on the following pages for:

UK/ Home students

Overseas / International students

LFS works also with The Leverhulme Trust, however please note, unfortunately no award is available for September 2024.
