Charities and Trusts
Educational trusts, foundations and charities offer a measure of funding within specific criteria, eg based on subject areas, location and other criteria. The Postgraduate Funding database searches many of these sources. Many local libraries also have, in their reference section, the book "The directory of grant making trusts". This is a useful source of potential funding.
Some alternative sources
A Professional and Career Development Loan is a fixed rate loans through selected banks for some further study courses. Unlike a Student Loan, repayments start on these loans as soon as the course ends, regardless of earnings.
Many students fund their further study either partly or wholly themselves through a combination of part-time work, savings, parental support etc. This option requires careful consideration before making any commitments.
