The University of Aberdeen Community Discount is a 20% discount available to all residents of the north-east of Scotland including Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray, who plan to apply, or who have applied already, to programmes with a start date in September 2022 or January 2023.
Please note, this scholarship is available for students registered for online programmes and on campus programmes delivered at our Aberdeen campus.
A special discount of 20% off the cost of any element of self-funded graduate study is available to residents of Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray who wish to undertake postgraduate study at the University of Aberdeen. The discount applies to a range of on-campus taught graduate programmes (Masters, Diploma and Certificate), year one of a full-time research programme (years one and two for part time research students) and online degrees and awards.
The scholarship is intended to support local people and business to either retrain and/or upskill in light of the ongoing impact of Covid-19 on the local economy and people’s livelihoods.
The discount applies only to any aspect of fees that may need to be self-funded and not covered by additional funding.
The discount is only eligible to those who are a permanent resident of Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray.
Please note that it is not possible to hold this discount along with another tuition fee discount or award provided by the University of Aberdeen, including the Alumni Discount. In the situation that you are eligible for the University of Aberdeen Community Discount and have also been awarded another tuition fee discount or award from the University, you will receive whichever award is of greater value.
