Eligibility criteria

Eligible students include any student who has graduated from Oxford Brookes University with an ordinary or honours degree and wishes to stay on or return for an additional degree (e.g. an undergraduate student who then studies for a taught master's course, or a taught master's graduate who enrols on another taught master's or an MPhil/PhD programme).

The Oxford Brookes MBA and Real Estate Investment Finance courses both have intakes at various points of the year.  Both courses are eligible for the Alumni Discount.

You must:

  • Hold an offer and register on a degree-awarding postgraduate course at Oxford Brookes University. The majority of courses qualify for the award, but please check the exception list below.
  • Be a graduate of Oxford Brookes University. That is, you must have qualified on a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree.


  1. Courses that are not eligible for the Alumnus Tuition Fee Discount: The Alumnus Tuition Fee Discount will not be applied to any courses of study that do not lead to a degree. This includes pre-sessional programmes in English Language, English Language Foundation Programmes, Modular Associate programmes, occasional study programmes, exchange programmes, or continuing professional development programmes. The discount does not apply to:
    • Diploma or certificate courses (Note: Graduate Diploma in Law does apply)
    • MBA ACCA members already paying a discounted fee
    • Masters in Applied Design in Architecture (MArchD)
    • Courses where a student has exited with a Certificate or Diploma level qualification and returns to complete a “top up” course for the master’s qualification.
    • Any Continuing Professional Development (Healthcare) course. 
  2. Previous study at Oxford Brookes University that does not meet the requirements of the Alumnus Tuition Fee Discount:
    • Previous study on courses that do not carry formal degree status means that you are not eligible for the Alumnus Tuition Fee Discount. This includes previous study on pre-sessional courses in English Language, English Language Foundation Programmes, occasional study courses, exchange courses, Modular Associate programmes, study abroad programmes, and certificate or diploma courses.
    • If you transfer from one course to another as part of normal progression arrangements, you are not eligible for the Alumnus Tuition Fee Discount on the second or subsequent course. For example: A student who commences on an MPhil and is then transferred to a PhD is not eligible for a discount for the PhD, as this is regarded as one research programme. Similarly, students on integrated Masters course are not eligible for the discount.

This funding is available to students studying on the following courses:


Research Degree

Continuing Professional Development (Healthcare)
