At the University of Liverpool, we’re excited to offer a number of discount options to enable our online students to learn for less. These discounts, combined with our scholarships, are part of helping students financially with obtaining postgraduate qualifications that can help them carve out a professional future.
Our discounts have different eligibility criteria, with different discounts available for applicants with different backgrounds. In this blog, we’re going to run through some of the discounts we have for our courses, covering who is eligible for each one.
What discounts are available for online study at Liverpool?
We have two main discount schemes available for our postgraduate qualifications, that offer different levels of discount. They are:
Full payment discount
This discount is for those who choose to pay their postgraduate programmes fees up front, instead of paying in instalments. If you opt to pay for your course in this way, you’ll get an extra 5% off the full cost of your programme. Find out more information by getting in touch with our admissions team here.
The alumni discount is for University of Liverpool students who have completed an undergraduate degree at the university and are moving on to proceed to the postgraduate stage. Any alumni who choose to study an online masters at Liverpool can get a 10% on their full programme fees. Find out more on our discounts webpage.
The 10% alumni discount is also available for those who have completed a postgraduate qualification at the university, provided the intention is to study a whole postgraduate programme with no exemptions from previous studies.
Each of these discounts are granted based on different terms and conditions. You can learn more about these terms by getting in touch with us on our contact page.
What is the difference between a discount and a scholarship?
While both discounts and scholarships are ways to make postgraduate education more affordable, there are some subtle differences to be aware of.
A discount is an amount of money taken off the overall fees you’ll pay towards a degree. You’ll pay the amount yourself, it’s just that it’ll be less than you’d pay if you were paying the full price of the programme.
A scholarship is a system where an institution, organisation or the university itself will pay all, or part of your programme fees. These scholarships are normally awarded for specific applicants with stringent requirements, such as academic excellence or financial background.
