Postgraduate taught (Master's) fee reduction

Please note: this offer is no longer available. The offer applied to applications for the 2020/21 and 2021/22 academic years only.  

The University of Bradford is offering a 20% reduction in postgraduate taught tuition fees to those affected by redundancy during the pandemic.

The reduction is offered to help those affected enhance their skills for future employment.

We understand that redundancy can be difficult to bounce back from. We want to help you if you’ve been affected, and support you in taking back control of your future.

Why study now?

With the job market becoming increasingly competitive during the pandemic, now could be the perfect time to study. A postgraduate taught degree could help you to:

  • Stand out from the crowd - You can develop advanced level skills, knowledge and experience and give yourself a crucial advantage.
  • Broaden your horizons - Often, you don't require a background in the subject you study. This means you could go for a slight, or even a complete career change.
  • Make the most of your time - If you have more spare time than before, studying is a great way to use it. Some of our postgraduate taught courses offer part-time options, so you can work round your other commitments.

Government-funded postgraduate loans of up to £11,570 are available to help cover your course fees and living costs, meaning you don't need to pay for your studies up front.

How can we help?

20% tuition fee reduction
