Discount Scheme for Masters Degrees: Warwick Graduates and Those Living in the Local Community (2024 Entry)

Have you considered your options and next steps? If you are thinking about improving your skills and employability through undertaking postgraduate study, we want to help you by making the option of postgraduate study more affordable to our alumni and graduating students.

We are therefore offering a 10% tuition fee discount for graduates of Warwick accepted onto our five full-time and part-time postgraduate masters level courses. This discount is also available to our local community: any applicant living within 15 miles of campus can also claim the 10% discount (proof of address required, either of the applicant or someone you live with, family member, guardians etc).

Please be aware that if you have been awarded an additional scholarship from the department, the 10% will be incorporated into the full amount rather than in addition to your other award.
