New corporate discount launched for online programmes with the University of Liverpool

The University of Liverpool has announced an expansion of its Online Learning Partnership scheme, to help employers of any size invest in the skills of their staff through online postgraduate education.

The scheme, which was originally created for organisations with more than 250 employees, is now open to any organisation looking to invest in the development of three or more employees – providing access to tuition fee discounts and tailored support for their learning and development priorities.

Professor Gavin Brown, the University’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, said: “The pace of digital transformation in higher education has increased in recent years and we have never been better placed to support employers who recognise that talent-development is still a high priority, even in the increasingly challenging economic climate. Our 100% online and part-time master’s programmes provide a fantastic opportunity for individuals to learn alongside their job and to put their new knowledge and skills into practice in the workplace alongside their studies. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises have a vital role to play in the post-pandemic economy and we hope that the expansion of our Online Learning Partnership scheme will support them to invest in their employees and see the benefits returned in higher performance and capability.”

Other discounts and scholarships are available for online programmes with the University, including a full payment discount, alumni discount for previous Liverpool graduates, and regional scholarships for international students based overseas in eligible countries.
