Frequently asked questions

What does wholly self-funding mean?
You are self-funding if you are paying all of your tuition fees yourself. This includes support from a friend or relative or in receipt of a career development loan or Postgraduate Loan from the Student Loans Company.

What does partially self-funding mean?
This means you are in receipt of partial funding towards your studies. This funding can include:

1. Funding from your employer
2. Partial Fees paid for by a third party where you have applied for funding (Company, NGO, Charity, External Scholarships, etc…)

How does this work? Please see examples below:

Alumnus A wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,250 (overseas). Alumnus A is successful in winning a Merit Scholarship (£10,000 fee discount). The net fee is therefore £9,250. The 20% Alumni discount is then applied to the self-funding component. (20% of £9,250 = £1,850). Alumnus A is self-funding and is required to pay £7,400.

Alumnus B wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £8,900 (Home/EU). Alumnus B is given an Alumni Loyalty Tuition Fee Discount of 20% = £1,780. The net fee is therefore £7,120.

Alumnus C wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,850 (overseas). Alumnus C has partial funding from an external charity of £10,000 towards the tuition fee. The net fee is therefore £9,850. The 20% discount is then applied (20% of £9,850 = £1,940). Alumnus C is self-funding the remainder and is required to pay £7,880.

Alumnus D wishes to study a MSc where the normal fee is £19,850 (overseas). Alumnus D has full scholarship funding from an external organisation covering full fees. No discount applies for fully sponsored students.
