Tuition fee discounts for Bath alumni and University staff

If you are a University of Bath graduate or employee, you may be eligible for a discount on your postgraduate tuition fees.

Alumni discount

If you have graduated with an Honours degree or equivalent from the University of Bath and are self-financing, you may qualify for a 10% discount on tuition fees for a postgraduate course here.

You may be eligible for the discount if you are not receiving any:

  • sponsorship, scholarships or bursaries which cover the full cost of the fees
  • state funding, like grants, which cover the full cost of the fees

We consider you self-financing if you are paying all or some of your tuition fees yourself (this includes Professional Career Development Loans and Postgraduate Loans for Master's Study). You are still deemed to be self-financing if you have support from a friend or relative.

If you are receiving partial funding for your fees, you may still qualify for the discount.

Check that you meet the full terms and conditions for the discount.

You do not need to apply for the alumni discount. If you meet the terms and conditions we will automatically discount your fees by 10% when you apply for your course.

Staff discount

If you are currently employed by the University or a partner institution, you may qualify for a discount on tuition fees for a part-time postgraduate course here. This discount is equivalent to 75% off the course Home fee whether your fee status is assessed as Home or Overseas.

You need to be employed on at least a half-time basis.

If you are a current student working part-time for the University after starting your degree you do not qualify for this discount.

This discount is at the discretion of the Director of Student Recruitment & Admissions, whose decision is final.

If you receive a staff discount you will not be eligible for an alumni discount.
