University of Essex Online: funding available for 100% online degrees and short courses

A university education is one of the biggest investments in yourself and your career. While you will usually pay several thousand pounds for good quality teaching and a well-regarded qualification at the end of your studies, university graduates benefit from increased earnings over their entire working life – £10,000 a year, according to a 2018 study by the Department for Education. Therefore, to help make their courses more accessible, University of Essex Online offers a range of funding opportunities.

Discounts, scholarships and flexible payment options

For the 2021-22 academic year, these include:

  • Full payment discount
    Pay your full tuition fee upfront and you will get a 5% discount.
  • International scholarship
    A partial scholarship is available to students residing in specific regions outside of the UK.
  • Student loan
    If you’re based in England, you might be eligible for a loan from Student Finance England.
  • Monthly payment plan
    This payment option will be available to you if you are self-funding your course.
  • Alumni discount
    If you’re a graduate from the University of Essex or University of Essex Online you’ll be eligible for a 10% discount.

Contact their Admissions team for more information about their discounts and scholarships and to discuss your eligibility.
