It cost me about £8k in total, including living expenses and tuition fees. I was able to cover it through (small) bursaries, loans and saved up money.

The AHRC think it costs around £8-10k for maintenance and around £3k for tuition fees. That's for subjects like English and History - might be different for other courses. I had a bit of money left over from my funded masters, so it may not cost quite that much. I think, in reality, you'll need to save £8k at the very least. It's worth applying for research council funding if you have the grades. I never thought I'd get it but I'm glad now that I took a shot. I'd be cautious about applying for the Career Development Loan, however. Some universities also run 'funding workshops' which help you find alternative means of funding (usually cobbled together from different sources) if you miss out on the big awards.

Hmmm. I think I'll just leave it. Cost is too much. Sad

Just wondering - how come?
I think the better option would be to study part-time and work part-time (or full-time, if you have the energy), paying as you go.
