LSBU Graduate Loyalty Scheme

Students in a classroom

Discounts for LSBU alumni offer sizeable tuition fee reductions

We want all our graduates to have the best possible chance of maximising their career success. Our Graduate Loyalty Scheme reduces the burden of further tuition fees and encourages our undergraduates into further study. Eligible students and alumni receive a discount on their postgraduate tuition fees when they enrol on one of our postgraduate courses starting this year.

Applying for the Graduate Loyalty Scheme only takes thirty seconds.

The scheme for 2017/18 entry offers:

  • 10% discount – all LSBU undergraduate students who graduated from their undergraduate programme in and since summer 2013 are automatically eligible for a 10% discount off a postgraduate taught course at LSBU
  • 10% discount – all LSBU taught postgraduate students who have graduated since summer 2013 and are progressing on to an MPhil or PhD at this University in 2017/18 (the discount applies to the fees charged for enrolment in the 2017/18 session only). This policy was introduced for the 2016/17 academic session.
  • 10% discount for Erasmus and Study Abroad students – students who have been part of the inbound LSBU Erasmus and Study Abroad programmes since 2013, and who have been awarded their bachelor's degree by their home institution since summer 2014, are eligible for a 10% discount off a postgraduate taught course at LSBU
  • 25% discount – for any LSBU student who is currently studying an undergraduate course in 2016/17 who graduates with a 2:1 or First and progresses onto postgraduate study at this university in 2017/18. This cannot be combined with the 10% discount
  • 25% discount – for any LSBU student who has gained a Distinction or Merit in their taught postgraduate programme in 2016/17 and is progressing directly onto an MPhil or PhD at this University in 2017/18 (the discount applies to the fees charged for enrolment in the 2017/18 session only). This cannot be combined with the 10% discount
  • a guaranteed course place – provided the entry criteria is met we guarantee an offer of a place. Some courses may have additional entry requirements, such as an interview or portfolio presentation. These must also be met before a place can be offered.
  • 5% early payment discount – applied to tuition fees if they are paid in full at your face-to-face enrolment.
