What is the Community Discount?

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.

You can use your 20% discount on any of our online postgraduate degrees, diplomas, or certificates starting in September 2021 or January 2022.

How to apply

First, you need to apply for your chosen online degree or award. We’ll then review your application and send you an offer to study with us.

Once you’ve received this offer, you can apply for your 20% discount by filling out our Community Discount application form.

When we receive your discount application, we’ll take it from there.

Are you eligible?

You’re eligible for our Aberdeen Community Discount if you are a permanent resident of Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire or Moray.

The discount applies to:

  • fees that you’re paying yourself, not fees that are covered by funding bodies or sponsors
  • online postgraduate degrees, diplomas and certificates, not individual online short courses.

You cannot apply this discount alongside another tuition fee discount or award provided by the University of Aberdeen, including our Alumni Discount.

If you’re eligible for our Community Discount and have been awarded another tuition fee discount or award from the University, you’ll receive whichever award is of greater value.
