Fees and Funding


The fees for the Global Online MBA are £34,800 for September 2017.

These fees are the same for both UK and international students.

Payment options

If you’re self-funded, you can pay your tuition fees in up to four installments over the two years of the programme.

The first installment is payable at the start of term and the second is payable six months after. This is repeated in the second year. If you pay in installments, a 2% surcharge of the total amount will be added to your first installment. You’ll be asked to select a payment schedule during the offer acceptance process. Please contact the Student Finance Team if you have any further questions.


If you’re made an offer for a place on the programme, you’ll be asked to pay a non-refundable deposit of 10% of the first year’s fee (£1,740 for September 2017) in order to secure your place.

The tuition fees team will email your deposit invoice within five working days of you accepting the offer, and this will need to be paid within 30 days of receiving the invoice. Failure to pay this in time may result in your offer being withdrawn.

Please note that Business School policy regarding deposits differs from that of other College departments, and deposits are non-refundable except for in specific cases of extenuating circumstances.
