Progression bursaries

Postgraduate Progression Bursary

We offer a postgraduate progression bursary to continuing students undertaking a full-time or part-time MA/MSc who gained their undergraduate degree with us. These bursaries are calculated as part of the invoicing process when you enrol onto a postgraduate course with us and fee invoices are adjusted to show the net amount owed, minus any bursary award.

Amounts available

  • £500 for full-time continuing students
  • A total of £500 for part-time continuing students (£250 is applied in year one, £250 in year two).

Selection criteria

Bursaries are available to UK and EU students who meet the following criteria:

  • Minimum of a upper second class Honours degree from the University of Huddersfield.
  • You must enter a taught postgraduate course at the University of Huddersfield in the year following graduation. You will not qualify for the bursary if you take a break from education.

Available to all University postgraduate taught qualifications (full-time and part-time) except NHS, Initial Teacher Training, Diploma in Architecture and distance learning courses.


Research degrees can represent a natural progression for the best graduates. If you have earned a first-class degree or a Postgraduate Master’s degree with distinction you may be eligible for one of our research scholarships.

We run a Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship scheme for University of Huddersfield graduates. Your application is assessed on the quality of your proposal, research topic and potential to engage in teaching.

Also, to commemorate the 65 anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second’s accession to the throne, we have launched a new Sapphire Jubilee Scholarship scheme that provides free research degrees to support our very best graduates from across the Commonwealth and to help them realise their full potential.

These scholarships mean that successful applicants pay no tuition fees to the University. You will be required to undertake a research degree - Masters by research or a PhD - on a full-time basis and within 12 months of graduation.

The breadth of research degrees available at Huddersfield reflects the range of fields, in which the University advances research, innovation and collaboration.
