20% fee discount on most Master's courses for BCU undergraduates
What you need to know
The Graduate Scholarship is a 20% fee reduction available to all BCU graduates enrolling onto an eligible postgraduate qualification within two years of graduation with a first or second class honours degree (first, 2:1, 2:2). Find out the full terms and conditions and eligibility criteria.
The Graduate Scholarship is automatically awarded to those who are eligible. If you are awarded the Graduate Scholarship, your offer will show the full fee but your postgraduate course fees will be discounted by 20% in each year of study. You can then choose to pay your fees in full at the start of the year, or by instalments. See our fees and funding pages for more information on paying your fees.
You can apply at any time for a postgraduate course (via MySRS), even if you do not have your degree results. Current BCU students can use our fast track application to apply in minutes.
