Scholarships and funding available

Join us at our next Postgraduate Open Day

Courses starting in January

BU offers a wide variety of Master’s degree subjects, and what’s more, if you join us in January 2023, you could be eligible for our Academic Achievement Scholarship (a £2,000 reduction in fees) for Home applicants or our Academic Excellence Scholarship (a £3,500 reduction in fees) for Overseas applicants.

Students in England may also be eligible for up to £11,836 of funding support from a postgraduate loan in January 2023. And, if you need to explore your accommodation options, check out our accommodation guarantee to see what’s on offer.

Please note that although there is no formal deadline to apply for a taught postgraduate degree, December and January is one of our busiest application periods so, to avoid disappointment, we recommend submitting your application for a January start as soon as possible.

Applications from international students

To be considered for January 2023 entry, international students must apply by 14 November 2022. After this date, we will stop accepting applications for this entry point.

Our International Admissions Team will make offers until 7 December 2022 and issue Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies statements (CASs) until 20 December 2022. Once you have an offer, please ensure your deposits have been sent by 10 December.

We are unable to release a CAS until the deposit of £3,000 is fully received and confirmed by our Finance Department, which can take up to 10 working days. We recommend the use of Flywire for any payments in December, as they come to the university quicker than bank transfers.
