Early payment discount - Postgraduate September 2024 entry

This is an automatic award of £2,000 for self-funded international fee-paying students who pay their deposit by the deadline stated on the self-service portal.


The discount is awarded as a £2,000 fee waiver for eligible students in the first year of their studies.

Eligibility criteria

In order to be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be an overseas fee-paying student for a full-time master’s programme starting in September 2024 (excludes part-time, distance-learning courses and the Veterinary General Practice PGCert)
  • Be self-funded (you must be paying for your studies independently rather than being sponsored. Students in receipt of an educational loan are eligible for this award)
  • Not be in receipt of another scholarship from the University, such as the International Excellence Award or the Future Leaders scholarship (students can accept one University-managed scholarship of the highest value)
  • Have paid the deposit by the deadline outlined in the self-service portal
  • This scholarship is not open to students from the Surrey International Study Centre (SISC)
  • Students who are eligible for the alumni discount can have this scholarship in addition to the alumni discount (can combine the alumni discount and early payment discount)

How to apply

As the fee will be automatically awarded, students do not need to apply.
