Postgraduate Scholarships

Every year we provide merit-based scholarships recognising the talents of our international students, which will be discounted against the cost of your tuition fees.

All international students enrolling on a postgraduate course in September 2023 will be eligible for a partial scholarship of up to £2,000, discounted from your tuition fees. This is awarded based on your academic background, and your grade will need to be the equivalent of a UK degree:

  • £1,500 if a Second Class (Upper Division) or 2:1 degree holder
  • £1,000 if a Second Class (Lower Division) or 2:2 degree holder

The following courses are exempted from this scholarship:

  • PhD
  • MSc Accounting & Finance (Top-Up)
  • Conservatoire and BSA courses (Music and Theatre)
  • PGCE
