UK/EU Postgraduate Scholarships & Funding

Richmond Postgraduate Scholarship

Applicants who have a Bachelor Degree with GPA of at least 3.3/4.0 or a Bachelor (Hons) Degree with a 2:1 or above will be eligible for our Postgraduate Scholarship* which is a 10% reduction in tuition fees.

You will receive a confirmation email from our admissions office. If you have studied outside of the UK or USA then the equivalency will be assessed by the Admissions Office.

Once awarded, continuation of the Scholarship into the second and subsequent semesters of study will be dependent on the Scholar:

  • Progressing normally on the programme, having achieved a cumulative GPA of not less than 3.7 by the completion of the previous semester; and
  • Remaining in good standing and making a positive contribution to University life.

The fee waiver is cancelled in total if the student does not remain actively enrolled for three successive semesters (full-time programmes) or six successive semesters (part-time programmes).

The Postgraduate Scholarship may not be held in conjunction with any other form of financial or scholarship support from the University.

* Excludes MA Luxury Brand Management programme
