Knowledge for a sustainable world

Peter Burt, Richard Fuchs

The University has introduced a new Fast Forward Master's Scheme, which will help you, as a high-performing UK graduate, develop your full potential by:

• Giving you an opportunity to take a University of Greenwich Master's programme for only 40% of the normal fees, starting in September 2014;
• Providing you with £500 towards study expenses such as books and IT;
• Supporting you with a senior career mentor;
• Providing a work experience programme to widen your horizons.

Students applying to NRI's Food Safety and Quality Management, and Agriculture for Sustainable Development MScs in full or part-time mode are eligible for the scheme. The programme is open to any home-based (UK) graduate (subject to a simple financial means threshold) with a first or upper second class degree. Applications will also be welcome from final year undergraduates who are predicted to achieve this level, with acceptance on the programme conditional on achieving it.

Places are limited and therefore will be allocated to eligible applicants on a first come, first served basis, so early application is recommended.

The discounted fee rate will be £2,880. Part time fees will be split across years of study depending on the programme. Fees will be subject to a 5% discount for prompt payment by the end of September 2014. Other fee waivers for Alumni and First Class Honours will not be payable in addition to the fee waiver on the Fast Forward Master's Scheme. The £500 support will be loaded onto an 'Aspire@Greenwich' card, which can be used to buy learning resources.

Applicants will need to have a declared household income of £40,000 or less and will be requested to provide documented evidence of this by the University. Current University of Greenwich students funded by Student Finance England (SFE) will need to ensure that SFE have 'consent to share' their household income assessment with the university.

For further information about the Master's programmes follow the links on the NRI study pages.
