The Postgraduate Progression Award is available to all University of Liverpool undergraduate students or alumni considering a new postgraduate taught/master's course, including MRes qualifications, at our Liverpool campus.
If you are a UK or EU, please see the Postgraduate Progression Award - UK and EU students.
The Postgraduate Progression Award is not eligible to the following groups of students:
- Students registered with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
- Students transferring to the University of Liverpool from partnership institutions where an alternative fee payment or scholarship arrangement has been made.
1.1) Students who have completed previous undergraduate study at the University of Liverpool who enter a full-time or part-time postgraduate taught master’s programme in academic year 2019-20, and who fall within the scope of these Regulations (see Section 1), will be considered for the Postgraduate Progression Award subject to the following criteria:
i) They must be beginning a new postgraduate taught master’s programme (including MRes programmes) in academic year 2020-21.
ii) They must be: (a) an alumnus or alumna of the University of Liverpool having completed an undergraduate degree on the Liverpool campus, or (b) returning for further study having previously studied as an undergraduate exchange student on the Liverpool campus.
1.2) Full-time taught postgraduate students will receive the award for one year. For part-time students the award will be paid at a rate pro-rata to the ratio of their programme fee to the full-time programme fee. Part-time taught postgraduate students will receive the award at this pro-rata rate for the duration of their studies or until a sum equal to £2,500/10% of the full-time 2020-21 programme fee has been deducted from their cumulative programme fees, whichever occurs sooner.
1.3) Students will not be eligible for the Postgraduate Progression Award in any year when they are receiving external sponsorship (e.g. payment of programme fees by a registered company, an overseas government, or the UK government) of value equal to or greater than the value of the award. The value of the award will refer to the pro-rata award where the student is registered on a part-time basis.
1.4) Where students qualify for other University funding, such funding will be applied as a discount to the programme fee raised, followed thereafter by the application of the discount awarded by the Postgraduate Progression Award.
1.5) Students in receipt of the Postgraduate Progression Award cannot concurrently hold a Vice Chancellor’s International Attainment Scholarship (PGT)
