Manchester Alumni Scholarship Scheme

The Manchester Alumni Scholarship Scheme offers eligible applicants a £3,000 reduction on tuition fees.

It is a means of supporting our outstanding graduates who wish to progress to master's level study having completed their undergraduate degree with us.

Eligibility criteria

The scholarship is available to applicants to a School of Environment, Education and Development master’s course who:

  • are a University of Manchester graduate;
  • have received a first-class honours degree;
  • are applying within three years of receiving their degree;
  • are an international, EU or home student who will study full-time, part-time or by distance learning;
  • have accepted an offer of a place on a School of Environment, Education and Development master's course by the end of June in the year their course starts.

Automatically considered

You do not need to apply for this scholarship separately. You will be automatically considered on the basis of your application for the course.

If you meet the eligibility criteria, you will be awarded the scholarship automatically, as long as you have accepted an offer of a place on a School of Environment, Education and Development master's course by the end of June in the year your course starts.

Any scholarship awarded will be applied as a reduction in the annual tuition fee for the course, rather than as a cash payment.

Successful applicants will be informed of an award by the end of July in the year their course starts.

Manchester Master’s Bursary

The University of Manchester is offering 100 bursaries for master’s students, each worth £3,000 in funding, to UK and EU students who will be starting taught or research master’s courses in September 2017.

The bursaries are aimed at widening access to master’s courses by removing barriers to postgraduate education for students from underrepresented groups, so you will need to meet a number of criteria to be eligible for the award.

Please note that we expect there to be more eligible applications than places, so meeting the criteria is no guarantee of an award.
