Whether you want to further explore your chosen academic subject, advance your career or broaden your employment options, a postgraduate degree from Queen Mary could open up doors for you.
***New for 2020! If you are enrolling on a Masters programme in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences then you will get a 20% discount. The standard £1000 discount still stands for all other programmes.***
Students who have studied at Queen Mary as an associate student (Study Abroad, Erasmus+, International Exchange Programme) will qualify for the Alumni Associate Bursary for Postgraduate study.
How much is it worth?
Master’s students will receive a £1000 off their tuition fees. For part-time this will be spread evenly over the two years. Those enrolling in Humanities and Social Sciences for September 2020 will get a 20% discount instead.
PhD students will receive £1000 off of their first years fees and will not receive the award in subsequent years.
What if I have not yet graduated from my first Queen Mary degree?
Once you complete your first degree you will be eligible. You do not have to attend the graduation ceremony to be eligible. You simply have to complete all components of the degree.
My sponsor is paying part of my fees. Am I still eligible for the Award?
Yes, as long as you will self-fund at least £1000 of your fees, you will be eligible for this Award.
Will the Award apply to future academic cycles?
We review this Award annually and it may be revised or removed from subsequent academic cycles.
Can I apply for the Award twice if I study for my undergraduate, masters and PhD at Queen Mary?
Yes, this discount can be used twice, once for a Masters degree and once for a Doctoral degree.
What if I leave part way through my course? Will the Award be repayable?
The Award will be assessed pro-rata and you will not have to repay the portion that has been awarded to you if you leave your course. This will coincide with the procedure for calculating outstanding tuition fees. You should check the details with Finance when withdrawing from your course as these procedures vary depending on the date on which you withdraw.
Am I eligible even if I am applying for the UK Government Postgraduate loan?
If you take a postgraduate government loan to pay your fees or receive financial support from a friend or relative, this will be classed as self-financing and therefore eligible for the Award.
Am I eligible if I am enrolling on a Distance Learning Masters course?
Yes, the award applies for students enrolling on our Distance Learning Masters programmes.
Please note that the award does not apply for Queen Mary Online programmes. Queen Mary Online students are eligible for a 10% Alumni Scholarship Loyalty Award – please visit their website for more information.
