students working on a project together


If you have achieved a first class honours degree and accept an offer on a Master's course before 28 June 2019, you could get £3,000 off your course tuition fee with our Master's discount.

You can use this scholarship alongside the Government Postgraduate Loan scheme.


To be considered for this Master’s discount you must be a UK or EU student and:

  • Accept an offer on a full-time (including distance learning) MA, MSc, MPA, MRes or LLM course by 28 June 2019, to start in September 2019
  • Achieve, or have already achieved, a first class honours degree

If you're a current student here, see our Master's discount for current students.

See terms and conditions for full eligibility criteria.

2-year courses

If you're studying a full-time Master’s course over 2 years you'll get the discount in the first year only.


These Master's discounts are limited. So we can't guarantee you'll get it if you're eligible.

You'll need to meet the specific entry criteria for the course you applied for. We give priority to students who show the highest academic achievement.

The University's decision on the allocation of the discount is in accordance with the terms and conditions and is final. There's no appeals process.

Alternative discounts and scholarships

You can only get one University of Portsmouth discount. For example, this Master’s discount or the Alumni discount – not both.

Make sure you read and understand the discount terms and conditions before you accept, as an alternative University discount or scholarship may be more suitable for you.
