Postgraduate (Home) Referral Scheme

Do you have friends or family who might be interested in undertaking postgraduate study?

The Postgraduate Referral Scheme is an extension of our International Referral Scheme and rewards Bradford alumni and students who refer British Nationals (i.e. home students) to commence postgraduate study at the University of Bradford.

About the Scheme

The Postgraduate Referral Scheme is designed to reward graduates and current students for referring UK based students to the University. 

  • You can refer someone you know to any full-time or part-time postgraduate course (excluding online MBA programmes), which runs for at least one full year.
  • For a referral to be successful, a referred student must successfully apply and enrol onto their chosen postgraduate programme, be shown to be engaging well with their course (i.e. have a good level of attendance) and complete their first semester.
  • Referred students must pay home-fees (i.e. UK national fees) and be a national or permanent resident of the UK.
  • For every successful referral, the University will reward up to £500 to the referrer.

Referral applications under the scheme are now open for the 2020/21 academic year. Read our terms and conditions here.
