We take care of our graduates at Manchester Met. If you’ve already completed an undergraduate course with us, you can receive up to 20% off your MBA course fee.

In addition, we can also provide you with a competitive, non-means tested loan of up to £10,000 to help you fund your studies. You will not need to make any repayments during your studies, and these repayments will be based on your income to ensure they stay manageable.

Please visit our Postgraduate Loan Scheme page for further information.

External Sources of MBA Funding

If you are not successful in receiving a scholarship from MMU, there are plenty of other ways to fund your studies.

Paying for your MBA

Your fees can be paid in instalments throughout the academic year. A typical payment plan would spread your fees across three instalments in October, January and April.

Personalised payment plans can sometimes be arranged if your personal circumstances would favour a more flexible approach. Please get in touch with us to ask about this.
