Fees and Funding

Tuition Fees

For the latest information on our programme fees, and for advice on payment methods and timings please visit the following page:

Postgraduate Diploma Fees

PGDip fees are generally two-thirds of the relevant Masters programme fees. For part-time students the fees may be unevenly split over the two years of the programme, to reflect the spread of teaching. Applicants should see the University pages above for the latest information here. 

Financial Support

Many students are able to obtain financial support towards the cost of tuition fees from their employer or through a scholarship. Please see the links below for further information.  

IDEA Scholarships

We are pleased to be able to offer a number of fees scholarships for entry to our taught postgraduate programmes in 2017/18. Please note that applications for 2016/17 scholarships is now closed.

Applied and Professional Ethics Scholarships

The Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Applied (IDEA) Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at the University of Leeds is able to offer partial fees scholarships for the MA/PGDip Applied and Professional Ethics (Online)

Any applicant (UK/EU/International and FT/PT) who applies for the MA/PGDip before the deadline is entitled to apply for a scholarship. 

Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic excellence, which will be assessed by considering your application to the University and supporting documents, and the interview conducted as part of the admissions process. For part-time students (who take the course over two years) the scholarship is subject to review at the end of the first year.

The scholarships provide partial payment of the academic tuition fees for the course. This allows academically gifted students to take the course who would otherwise not be able to for financial reasons. 

Applicants should first complete an application to study at the university, specifying their intended programme of study as the MA/PGDip Applied and Professional Ethics. You will then need to complete a separate scholarship application form

All applications for the scholarship, including a full application for the programme, must be received by 30th June 2017 in order to be considered.

Employer Support 

Many of our students receive financial support from their employers, who recognise the value of postgraduate study for staff development. 

UK Salary Sacrifice Scheme 

In the UK employers’ contributions to work-related training are tax-deductible, and this can make a significant difference to the cost of studying for students whose employers are meeting some or all of their training costs. Further details of the scheme can be found on the HMRC website.
