Progression Discount

Progression Discount

Home, EU and International students who have completed an undergraduate level course, or a PgDip/PgCert at the University, may be eligible for a £1,000 discount on tuition fees when starting a taught Masters course in the 2015/16 or 2016/17 academic years.

Eligibility for the discount

  • You must be a Home, EU or International student starting a taught Masters level course at the University in the 2015/16 or 2016/17 academic years.  This includes full cost postgraduate courses at Drama Centre London and the Executive MBA course at London College of Fashion.
  • The previous UAL course needs to be at undergraduate level or a Postgraduate Diploma/Postgraduate Certificate course. Undergraduate level includes BA, BSc, Foundation degree, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate courses. It does not include Artscom or Further Education courses such as the Foundation Diploma in Art & Design.
  • Students must have successfully passed the qualifying UAL course. The University reserves the right to request evidence of this if the course took place before the period covered by the University’s student records system (i.e. before 1996).

Exclusions to the discount

The following students are not entitled to the discount in 2015/16 or 2016/17:

  • Students on four-year Integrated Masters courses.
  • Research students studying for an MPhil or PhD qualification.
  • Students on the CLTAD MA in Academic Practice CPD course.
  • Students already in possession of a Masters level qualification.
  • Students in receipt of a Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship.

Deferring your place

University policy on entitlement to the £1,000 postgraduate progression discount is being reviewed for 2017/18 entry, therefore UAL cannot guarantee it will be available should you defer your place from a previous academic year.

Additional information

Where tuition fees are being paid under the Postgraduate instalment payment arrangements, the instalments will be based on the course fee after the discount has been deducted.

The £1,000 value of the discount applies to the full course; not to each year of study. Students on two-year Masters courses, therefore, receive a £500 discount from each year’s fee.

You do not need to apply for the discount but should contact the admissions department at the College for the correct fee for your course.
