Bursaries and fee waivers available for September 2022 entry

Bright Network application fee waiver

Amount
£80 covering application fee
Eligibility

We are delighted to support talented students by offering Bright Network members an application fee waiver. Please note the waiver covers the £80 application fee, but applicants are still required to pay full tuition fees. If you are already a member of the Bright Network, please email us at business.school@imperial.ac.uk with your name to request your discount code. If you are not yet a member of the Bright Network, please sign up, where you will also be given the discount code.

Please note: The waiver must be requested before you submit your application, and cannot be retrospectively applied.

Imperial Loyalty Bursary - 10% of the tuition fees

Amount
10% of the tuition fees
Eligibility

We welcome applications from Imperial College London alumni. We offer a 10% bursary on tuition fees to successful candidates with an undergraduate degree from Imperial awarded at a minimum of Upper Second Class Honours, or Master’s degree awarded with a minimum of Merit.

How to apply

Imperial College London students or alumni who submit their MSc programme application before the below deadline and receive an offer for the programme will automatically receive this award.

We cannot guarantee the availability of Imperial Loyalty Bursaries for applications received after the deadline.

Requirements
  • An undergraduate degree from Imperial awarded at a minimum of Upper Second Class Honours, or Master’s degree awarded with a minimum of Merit. Candidates who are currently in their final year will be assessed on their marks to date & predicted performance
Deadline

If you are offered an Imperial College Business School scholarship or Imperial Loyalty Bursary and are subsequently offered a larger award by us, the larger one would supersede the first award and would not be in addition to it.

Scholarships awarded by Imperial College Business School are in the form of a reduction of the tuition fee. Therefore, if you receive another scholarship that pays the full tuition fee directly to the College, you cannot also receive a scholarship from the Business School.

I am still particularly thrilled to tell people that I was awarded a Women in Finance Scholarship, a huge honour to female candidates who demonstrate academic strength and leadership potential. It indeed inspired me to work harder and achieve more both as a student at Imperial and as a female in the financial industry. My advice to incoming students is to spend time on your application, showcase your passion and confidence, and putting effort in highlighting achievements that are relevant to your goals.
