Funding your degree
WBS scholarships are designed to promote excellence as well as support diversity and inclusion. This helps to create a rich learning environment within each of our cohorts to ensure your learning experience at WBS is maximised.
We have merit-based scholarship funding available to strong candidates for up to 25% of the tuition fees. Scholarships are awarded on an ongoing basis, so applying early may give you a stronger chance of being successful.

If you're self-funding or partially employer-funded, and are interested in applying for a scholarship, you will need to submit a written statement (up to 500 words) with your application outlining why you believe you should be awarded a scholarship, taking the elements listed below into consideration.
- Evidence of individual impact
- Alignment with WBS’ core values – Curiosity, Openness, Restlessness and Excellence
- A desire to make a positive difference in your role, your organisation, or beyond
