Are you eligible for an alumni scholarship?

In order to qualify for an alumni scholarship, you AND the course you wish to take must be eligible. The alumni scholarship excludes courses leading to PGCE and Master of Architecture qualifications and does not apply to courses of four year full-time study leading to MEng, MPharm or similar qualifications.

Please note, the alumni scholarship does not apply to students undertaking courses that are equivalent to or lower than qualifications already achieved.

If you AND your course ARE BOTH eligible you can claim 20% off your tuition fees.

Please note: Alumni scholarships are only applicable to students paying their own fees*. If you are part sponsored, the discount will be applied to the self-paying part only.

* The one exception is if the sponsor is a Small and Medium Sized Employer (SME). In this case the sponsor will be entitled to the alumni scholarship on your tuition fee. To see if the SME sponsor qualifies for alumni scholarship, please visit our sponsor page for eligibility criteria.

What does this mean?

If it says your course is 'ELIGIBLE'
If your course is eligible for an alumni scholarship you do not need to apply for it. Your tuition fee invoice will automatically be reduced by the 20% discount. If you pay your fees before receipt of your tuition fee invoice, please deduct 20% from the gross tuition fee. If you pay your fees in full before or on your invoice due date you will also be eligible for a 2% prompt payment discount after the alumni scholarship has been removed. Please refer to the 'Tuition Fee Discount' policy for your academic year on our 'Where can I find tuition fee policies and procedures?' article for details.

If it says your course is 'NOT ELIGIBLE'
If your course is not eligible for an alumni scholarship, you will not be able to claim the 20% discount.
