Executive MBA

The following scholarships relate to the September 2018 and January 2019 EMBA programme intakes.

MBA and 1+1 MBA

Some of our MBA scholarships have fixed application deadlines. The remainder are awarded following each MBA admissions stage and all eligible offer-holders are considered at each stage. Not all candidates will meet the eligibility criteria for our scholarships, we therefore also have bursaries available, for which all MBA offer-holders are considered.

Loans, scholarships and grants are available from organisations external to the University.

Our students often use external scholarships, grants and student loans to partially or fully fund their fees and/or living expenses. 

Loan funding is dependent on your country of residence, as it is often linked to government or state-run schemes.
