Postgraduate fees and funding

We’re committed to supporting students and believe that finance should not be a barrier to accessing education. Going to university represents a real investment in your future and there is plenty of support available.

Our dedicated Postgraduate Alumni Scholarship provides ߣߣƵ graduates with a tuition fee discount of 20 per cent. The discount is available on selected full-time, part-time and distance learning postgraduate taught courses running across multiple start dates. All UK, EU and international alumni who have completed an undergraduate degree at ߣߣƵ are eligible.

Other sources of funding include charities and trusts, employers and part-time work, as well as postgraduate loans issued by Student Finance England.


Education 2030

Our block approach to teaching, called Education 2030, provides a good study-life balance. Thanks to a straightforward structure and timetable, you get to study one module at a time. This way you focus on a topic for several weeks with the same classmates and tutor, which creates a strong sense of community with ongoing assessment rather than final exams.

We realise one size doesn’t fit all and variations are available based on the professional requirements of your course, while ensuring you benefit from the same excellent experience.
