Postgraduate courses with 50% funding offer

Postgraduate courses with 50% funding offer

Did you know that having a postgraduate qualification can increase your earning potential by £8,000*?

Or that in the last UK economic crash in 2008, employment among those with postgraduate qualifications was slower to fall and faster to recover than for those with only a first degree**?

If you are a 2021 BNU graduate and you register for a postgraduate course at BNU after 21 March 2021 for September 2021, February 2022 or September 2022, the University will pay 50% of your fees.

If you are a 2020 graduate you can benefit from the same funding if you register for a postgraduate course at BNU after 21 March 2021 for September 2021. Terms and conditions apply (see below).

Terms and conditions

If you’ve completed an undergraduate degree (Level 6) at Buckinghamshire New University, in 2020 or 2021 and you’d like to start a postgraduate course (Level 7) at BNU within 12 months of graduating, you may be eligible for a 50% fee waiver per year for full-time or part-time Level 7 courses (in attendance or distance learning).

This applies to UK, EU and international students studying at our High Wycombe Campus, Uxbridge Campus or Aylesbury Campus.

Please note: You can only be eligible for one offer; this offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount, scholarship or bursary.

This offer applies to students who enrolled through BNU directly and not through one of our partnerships.

You are not eligible if you have completed the first stage of a postgraduate award and are planning to continue to the second stage.

The fee waiver cannot be applied retrospectively for anyone from the 2020 graduating class who has already enrolled onto a postgraduate course.

Subject to the aforementioned exclusions, only those from the graduating class of 2020 and 2021 who enrol onto a BNU level 7 postgraduate course within 12 months of graduating may be eligible for this offer.
