LSBU Loyalty Award

We support our graduates with discounts on tuition fees for further study

Our focus is to support our students with career success and lifelong learning, whether they are progressing into postgraduate study with us, or re-joining us many years after graduating. In a competitive and crowded marketplace, a postgraduate qualification will help students stand out from the crowd, demonstrate advanced further learning and enhance prospects.

We’re thrilled to offer the LSBU Loyalty Award to eligible students, providing a discount on postgraduate tuition fees when they enrol on one of our postgraduate courses.

Our loyalty award for 2020/21 entry:

    • 20% discount on the tuition fee for all LSBU undergraduate students who enrol on a postgraduate taught course (PGT) at LSBU, regardless of year of graduation.
    • 20% discount on the tuition fee - for all LSBU students completing a taught postgraduate degree and progressing onto an MRes, MPhil or PhD, regardless of year of graduation. This discount is only applicable for the first enrolment in the initial academic session and not for subsequent re-enrolments.
    • 20% discount on the tuition fee – for all students who have been part of the inbound LSBU Erasmus and Study Abroad programmes since 2015 and who have been awarded their bachelor’s degree by their home institution since summer 2016. Students are eligible for a 20% discount on a postgraduate taught course at LSBU.
    • 5% early settlement discount – in addition to the above discounts an extra 5% discount is applied to the balance of your tuition fees if they are paid in full at your online enrolment.
