The university's Fast Forward Master's Scholarships and Fee Waivers are designed to help high performing final year undergraduates progress to master's level studies starting in September 2015.
The Fast Forward Master's Scholarship will provide a £5000 bursary and a £5000 discount from the normal published fee levels.
The Fast Forward Master's Fee Waiver will provide a £5000 discount from the normal published fee levels only.
The two schemes are open to final year home undergraduates (subject to a simple financial means threshold- see below) who are predicted to achieve a First or Upper Second class degree. Offers for the Scholarship and Fee Waiver schemes will be made conditional upon achievement of that degree outcome, and will be confirmed (or withdrawn) once results have been published.
The number of Fast Forward Master's Scholarships available is currently expected, by faculty, to be as follows:
In addition a significant number of Fast Forward Master's Fee Waivers will be available.
Students will need to have a declared household income of £40,000 or less, and will be asked to demonstrate this by providing certain information as requested by the university. Students funded by Student Finance England (SFE) will need to ensure that SFE have "consent to share" their household income assessment with the university.
Applications will be made to a single Fast Forward Master's scheme, covering both the Scholarship and Fee Waiver schemes. The first step in assessing applications will be to assess whether:
Those applications which pass this assessment ("qualified applications'') will then be reviewed to determine which should be offered a Scholarship and which should be offered a Fee Waiver. This decision will be made on a first come/ first service basis.
Scholarships will be offered to students submitting complete qualified applications (including agreements, permissions, and degree classification prediction letter/email) on a first come/first served basis (on the basis of date and time of application) by each Faculty, up to the limits set out above. The remainder will be offered Fee Waivers subject to availability.

Fast Forward Master's Scholarships and Fee Waivers are available for part time programmes too, but such programmes must be completed within two years. Part time fees will be split across the years of study, depending on the programme.
Fees will be subject to a 5% prompt payment discount if paid by the end of September 2015. Other fee waivers (for example the Alumni and First Class Honours waivers) will not be payable in addition to Fast Forward Master's Scholarships and Fee Waivers.

The closing date for applications is 30 June 2015, but early application may be advantageous if the number of qualified applications exceeds the places available.
