Fees and Funding

When and how to pay

To secure your place on the course you must lodge a deposit of 10% of the year 1 fee with us within four weeks of receiving your offer. This will be a deposit of £2,595 for the September 2024 intake. The deposit is part of the total fee, not an additional cost. Read more about how to pay at the University's finance pages. By paying the deposit you are agreeing to the University of Warwick refund policy which can be viewed here.

Tuition fees are payable in advance or at the start of each academic year. Payments can be made by bank transfer, banker’s draft, cheque, telephone, direct debit or credit/debit card. If you have been awarded a scholarship, this will be deducted from your tuition fee as stated in your offer letter.

Self-funding students can either pay the annual tuition fee at the start of each year or can opt to pay in instalments with the following payment schedule:

  • 25% of tuition fees due on the first day of your academic year
  • 25% of tuition fees due on first day of month 4 of your academic year
  • 25% of tuition fees due on first day of month 7 of your academic year
  • 25% of tuition fees due on first day of month 10 of your academic year.

The Executive MBA has been designed as a two-year programme, with the flexibility to extend your studies if required. Extensions into a third year incur no additional charge, whilst studies extending into a fourth or fifth year incur an extension fee.

Financing your MBA

Choosing to complete an MBA either full or part-time requires significant investment both in terms of cost and time. To support this investment, various funding sources are available.

Please note that the Executive MBA is not eligible for the Postgraduate loan through Student Finance.

Self-funded students have the choice to either pay all their tuition fees for the academic year by the start of their course or pay in instalments. Candidates can pay in four equal instalments of 25% per year. Employer-funded candidates must pay in full at the start of each year.
