Progression bursaries

Postgraduate Progression Bursary

We offer a postgraduate progression bursary to continuing students undertaking a full-time or part-time MA/MSc who gained their undergraduate degree with us. These bursaries are calculated as part of the invoicing process when you enrol onto a postgraduate course with us and fee invoices are adjusted to show the net amount owed, minus any bursary award.

Amounts available

  • £500 for full-time continuing students
  • A total of £500 for part-time continuing students (£250 is applied in year one, £250 in year two).

Selection criteria

Bursaries are available to UK and EU students who meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum of a upper second class Honours degree from the University of Huddersfield.
  • You must enter a taught postgraduate course at the University of Huddersfield in the year following graduation. You will not qualify for the bursary if you take a break from education.

Available to all University postgraduate taught qualifications (full-time and part-time) except NHS, Initial Teacher Training, Diploma in Architecture and distance learning courses.
