Tuition Fees and Funding

We want you to have a fulfilling and rewarding Global Online experience at Manchester Met. Naturally, one of the key concerns you might have when deciding whether to embark on a postgraduate or professional studies course is the issue of fees and funding.

Below, you will find information to help you understand how to pay for your course, what your university fees will cover, the funding options that might be available to you and the scholarships we offer.

Fees, funding and scholarships

We provide a variety of flexible options when it comes to fees, student funding and scholarships.


The course fees for our Global Online programmes include your tuition fees along with ongoing access to our student and careers services. You can find course fee information on the relevant course page or speak to one of our Recruitment Advisors to find out more at the point of enquiry.


For our online master’s courses, we offer several funding options. You can pay the entirety of your course fees upfront or in a series of manageable payments, have your fees sponsored by an employer or other approved sponsor, or make use of the financial support and scholarships available. We recommend researching master’s funding as early as possible to give yourself the best chance of securing it. For more information about funding support, visit our main website.

Scholarships and discounts

We currently offer a 10% Early Bird Discount for students applying for our Global Online MBA, MBA in Strategic Health and Social Care and International Human Resource Management master’s programmes starting before October 2018. To be eligible, you’ll need to apply for your chosen programme before the application deadline and pay the initial instalment before the payment deadline. The discount is available for UK, EU and international students.

We also offer regional scholarships for international students enrolled on certain Global Online courses. Please contact our Enrolment Team for more information.

Note, scholarships and discounts can not be used in conjunction with one another.

Other funding options and discounts

You may want to explore some of our other funding options, as well as our alumni discounts. However please note, discounts cannot be run in conjunction with each other.

Corporate finance

If you’re a business or organisation and would like to enrol a number of employees on a particular programme over a fixed period of time, we can offer discounted tuition fees.

We are also happy to provide partner organisations with the chance to enrol a number of students on a closed cohort, with a syllabus that is contextualised to meet the specific needs of the business.

Alumni discounts

Manchester Metropolitan University values its alumni and is pleased to offer an exclusive alumni loyalty discount for former students looking to study a Global Online programme.

You may be eligible for the discount if you have successfully completed a Manchester Met undergraduate or postgraduate taught degree (excluding HND), a foundation degree, a PGCE or a GDL at the University. You must also be able to meet the requirements for entry to your chosen online course.
