Fees

The fees for the January 2018 intake of the Global Online MBA are £34,800.

These fees are the same for both UK and international students.

Students whose fee liability exceeds £2,000 may apply to pay their fees in two instalments, although the option to pay fees in instalments is not available to students under the age of 18:

  • The first instalment shall be payable on the first day of the month closest to one month prior to the programme commencing, or within 30 days, whichever is the latter.
  • The second instalment is payable on the first day of the month closest to five months after the session for that programme commences (i.e. six months after the standard due date for the first instalment).

No interest is payable on the amount of credit extended through payment of fees by instalments but credit is subject to a facility fee of 2% of the total fee payable (representative 10.4% APR) with this fee payable with the first instalment of 50%. The option to pay by instalments is not available to applicants or students under the age of 18. Applicants that are over the age of 18 will be able to apply to pay by instalments by emailing the Tuition Fees team.

Representative Example
Tuition fees of £26,000, deposit payment of £2,600, cash price £23,400, facility charge £468, total amount of credit £23,868 payable in two instalments of £12,168 by 1 October 2016 and £11,700 by 1 March 2017, total payable £23,868 representative 10.4% APR.

If you’re made an offer for a place on the programme, you will be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit of 10% of the first year’s fee (£1,740 for September 2017) to secure your place. This is part of the total fees and not an additional cost.

The tuition fees team will email your deposit invoice within five working days of you accepting your offer. This will then need to be paid within 30 days of receiving the invoice.

Your offer may be withdrawn if you fail to pay the deposit on time. Apart from in certain circumstances, deposits are not refundable if you fail to take up your place in the programme. You can find out if you qualify for a refund and the process for requesting a refund on the College’s postgraduate deposit information page.

Funding

We know that choosing to pursue an MBA is one of the most important decisions you will make and is a substantial investment in yourself. Many of our students on the Global Online MBA fund their studies through multiple funding sources, combining personal resources with education loans and scholarships. Funding sources to consider:

You should consider what personal resources are available to you and evaluate your income, assets and your lifestyle expenses. Personal resources reduce your dependency on loans and other financing options.
