  • All UG and PGT students are eligible for an International Scholarship Award, which is applicable to each year of study.
  • UG and PGT students who pay all fees for the year either on or before enrolment will be entitled to a further reduction of £250. This Full Fee Payment Award is applicable for each year of the study. Please note that you will only be eligible for the Full Fee Payment Award if you or a member of your family, or other private sponsor will be paying your fees.

MBA Credit Exemption, PG Cert or PG Dip students will be entitled to a proportion of the award, depending on the number of modules taken.
  • The fee rate for research degrees is determined by the nature of the research project. For example, the classroom rate would be applicable to most literature-based projects in the arts, humanities, mathematics and social sciences; the laboratory rate would be applicable to most practical-based projects in the arts, sciences, and social sciences. In addition, employer or government-sponsored students are not eligible for scholarships or other tuition fees reductions.
