Saving you money on your fees

You may be able to apply for a scholarship to study with us at the University of East London. Our International Office can advise you about any opportunities in your own country, the UK or in your particular subject area.

If you previously studied at UEL and were awarded a qualification, you are eligible for our Alumni Scholarship, which is worth 10% off your tuition fees for any subsequent courses you take with us. Any UEL student who progresses directly onto a postgraduate programme with no gap year will receive 15% discount off tuition fees. This cannot be combined with the 10% discount.

To apply, you must already hold one of the following qualifications from UEL:

• undergraduate degree
• master’s degree
• professional doctorate degree
• postgraduate research degree

You cannot apply for the Alumni Scholarship if your course involves distance learning or if you are studying towards a post-compulsory education and training (PCET) course or any short course or courses worth less than 120 credits.
