15% discount for postgraduate courses

SRUC is trialling a new 15% discount on tuition fees on its taught postgraduate courses for alumni.

The 15% tuition fee discount is being offered for those commencing their postgraduate studies this September for the duration of their postgraduate study. 

Eligible alumni will have previously achieved a degree, or when accepted as appropriate for entry, an HNC or HND with SRUC (or the former SAC, or the East/North/West Colleges of Agriculture or the Barony/Elmwood/Oatridge Colleges).

The taught postgraduate awards eligible for the discount are those awarded through the University of Glasgow, namely the Masters and Postgraduate Diplomas in:

  • Agricultural Professional Practice (APP)
  • Applied Poultry Science (APS)
  • Countryside Management (CM)
  • Organic Farming (OF)
  • Rural Business Management (RBM)

It should be noted that this benefit is being trialled for 2016 entry, and if proven successful will be reviewed for continuation for 2017/18 intake.

Relevant experiential learning and other professional/vocational qualifications are valued and exceptionally, and at the discretion of the Admissions Tutor for the award, applicants with HND/C will be accepted onto Postgraduate awards. Therefore, HND/C graduates from the former SAC, the East/North/West Colleges of Agriculture, and the Barony, Elmwood and Oatridge Colleges are eligible if accepted onto a Postgraduate award.
  • This Alumni Benefit is available for new students enrolling on their award in September 2016.
  • Eligible taught postgraduate awards are:
    • Agricultural Professional Practice (APP)
    • Applied Poultry Science (APS)
