We do recognise that the high quality, and therefore high cost learning model we operate here is beyond some people’s financial means, and we would like our programmes to be more accessible to these students. We do have a bursary for students studying full-time at Masters level (but not for PG Dip or PG Cert) and encourage students to apply. For information about Bursaries click here
