Alumni Discount Scheme

Fees and Expenses

Alumni Discount Scheme for Masters Degrees (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 selected full-time and part-time postgraduate masters level courses.

Please be aware that if you have been awarded an additional scholarship from your academic department, the 10% may be incorporated into the full amount rather than in addition to your other award. All scholarships awarded by Warwick Business School, Department of Chemistry and the School of Engineering are inclusive of the 10%.


The 10% tuition fee discount will be available to Warwick graduates who have Home or Overseas fee status and will be studying a Masters degree. Postgraduate Awards, Certificates, Diplomas, integrated Masters and Research courses are not eligible for the scheme. You must be a graduate of Warwick at level 6 or above (e.g. Bachelor's Degree). Students who have studied at UCB and received a degree (level 6 or above) which is accredited by the University of Warwick are also eligible for the discount.

You must be self-funding and have no other source of financial support from outside of the University of Warwick other than a student loan. You will not be eligible if you are a student sponsored by or holding a scholarship from an external organisation.

You are eligible for the 10% discount as long as you apply in the current admissions cycle and identify on your application that you have a qualification from the University at Level 6 or above (e.g. Bachelor's Degree).

Some course restrictions apply, including our MBA, PGCE, MA Professional Education, Diploma plus MSc Economics and MBChB courses. You can see whether your course is eligible on your chosen course page.

Self-funded (self-paying) definition

You are considered to be a self-funded or self-paying student if you are financing your studies with your own savings or if you are receiving financial assistance from family or friends. If you take out a student loan to cover the cost of your studies you are also considered to be self-funded.

You are not self-funded if your fees are being paid by your employer or a third party (other than family and friends) or if you are in receipt of a study grant or scholarship external to the University.


There are no closing dates and Warwick graduates do not need to apply for the discount.

Additional Scholarship opportunities

You might be eligible for additional funding toward your masters level study through the Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship Scheme as well. This scheme is for UK domiciled students only. It supports access to masters level study for up to 50 students per year who are from demographic groups which are under-represented in postgraduate education.

Our academic departments also offer a range of Scholarship opportunities to support students from a range of backgrounds. Please see your course page for details of these schemes.


As long as you meet the criteria detailed above, the 10% discount will be applied against the tuition fee on your student account.
