However, in the case whereby fees are payable by both the student and an eligible external sponsor, e.g. an employer, the external sponsor can choose to waive their eligibility for an alumni discount. If this is the case, the external sponsor should email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise the University of their decision as soon as possible quoting the student’s full name, course and Manchester Met ID number. The finance team will then allocate the full alumni discount entitlement to the student’s proportion of the fees for the duration of the course.
- Discounts will be reduced pro-rated if a student leaves the course which results in a fee reduction – please refer to the Regulations for the Payment of University Fees.
- With the exception of Manchester Metropolitan University merit awards, Manchester Metropolitan University alumni will only be eligible for one Manchester Metropolitan University award, discount, scholarship or initial discounted tuition fee. The award with the greater discount will be awarded.
- If a student is eligible for both a Manchester Metropolitan University merit award and an Alumni discount the merit award will be applied to annual tuition fee charged, the Alumni discount will then be calculated based on the remaining balance.
