Postgraduate Master’s Bursary

With £3,400 off our MA and MSc courses, there's never been a better time to further your career with postgraduate study at Wrexham Glyndŵr University. With help from the Welsh Government we're offering limited-time fee discounts on MA and MSc courses starting this September 2018 in the form of support bursaries.

Subject to terms and conditions, the bursaries are offered on a first-come first-served basis and the deadline for applications is August 31, 2018.

The postgraduate support package bursaries are available for students living in Wales and the EU. If you’re a Wrexham Glyndŵr University alumnus, you could also be eligible for our Postgraduate Scholarship that can be used with the fee discount to reduce your tuition fees even more.
