Why postgraduate study?

Our postgraduate programmes are practical and relevant. You can choose to specialise by focusing on a specific discipline, or add to your existing specialist degree with broader commercial and management experience. Many of our programmes are accredited by professional bodies and provide exemptions to professional qualifications.

Are you looking for a change in direction? Postgraduate study can open new doors and provide an opportunity for a change in career.

Your alumni scholarship

We are delighted to be able to offer all Aston graduates (including exchange students) a 20% loyalty scholarship which is applied automatically as a tuition fee discount. This scholarship applies to all Aston University standard on-campus taught masters and online programmes. 

The scholarship also applies to the Full-time, Executive part-time and Online MBA programmes. 

Add further value to your degree

We are offering students who choose to join Aston University on a taught master’s degree in September 2023 the opportunity to gain an additional professional management qualification for free.

You can study the Chartered Management Institute Level 7 Award in Strategic Management and Leadership Practice from June to September 2023. This is a prestigious professional qualification awarded by the chartered body for management and leadership in the UK, and taught by Aston Business School’s top academics.

Teaching will take place online, and you will have the flexibility to study in your own time.


Short courses and CPD programmes in the College of Health and Life Sciences are not eligible for the alumni scholarship.

Students joining from ONCAMPUS programmes are also not eligible for this scholarship.
