Financial support

The School of Management offers a number of scholarships to MBA students from anywhere in the world to help fund tuition fees.

Please note that where candidates are eligible for more than one scholarship they will be offered the one of highest value.

MBA Merit Scholarships

Worth up to 50% of tuition fee.

Available to support and encourage high calibre self-funding students for entry to the Full-time and Executive part-time MBA in the UK (September 2016 entry) and the Accelerated MBA (January 2017 entry). Scholarship offers will normally be made during the offer process based on your application for the programme.

For these awards, we focus on rewarding the potential contribution a student brings to the programme and its cohort, evaluating not just academic excellence, but work and personal achievements also.

How to apply: You do not need to make a separate application for the scholarship, you will be automatically considered for this award. Early applications are recommended as these scholarships are assessed and awarded throughout the year and subject to availability.

Alumni discount

Self-funded University of Bradford alumni, regardless of when they have graduated will receive a 15% discount on the self-funded element of their tuition fees if they achieved a 2:2 or above in their undergraduate degree or a pass in their Master's.

Company-sponsored study bursaries

A business relationship bursary of up to 35% is available for companies who have supported or worked with the School who are sponsoring or part-sponsoring an MBA student.

The amount will depend on the strength of the relationship, which might include companies who have previously funded a student on a Bradford programme, employed a placement student, facilitated a student project, employed a member of faculty to produce a KTP or research project or commissioned an Executive Education programme.

The list is not exhaustive and other business engagement activities could be considered eligible.
