New bursary to help economic recovery
9th September 2020
The University of Gloucestershire has launched a new bursary to support local employees whose jobs have been adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Gloucestershire Recovery Bursary entitles eligible applicants to a 20% discount in tuition fees for some of its most popular Postgraduate taught courses.
Two groups would be eligible:
- Gloucestershire residents who have been made redundant since 1st July 2020 (e.g. people living at an address with a Gloucestershire postcode)
- People who have been made redundant from a Gloucestershire-based business since 1st July 2020 (e.g. their place of work has a Gloucestershire postcode)
The discount applies to the university’s Masters in Cyber Security, Mechatronics and Engineering Management, Marketing and Human Resource Management, Financial Technology (FinTech) as well as the prestigious MBA programme. Applicants must meet the course entry requirements for the programme they wish to join.
The UK government already offers PG loans for fees and living costs for UK Graduates, so the new discount could bring Masters study closer to reality. You can find out more here.
