We are immensely proud of our network of Cranfield Defence and Security alumni, and we are committed to ensuring that our relationship is mutually beneficial and lifelong.

Therefore, we are delighted to announce that we offer an alumni discount scheme for all award bearing taught and research degrees offered by Cranfield Defence and Security.

Eligible courses are PhD, MPhil, MSc, PGDip and PGCert.

The discount scheme offers a 10% course tuition fee discount to all those self-funding alumni who choose to return to Cranfield for further study and is available on all Cranfield Defence and Security course tuition fees.

Continuing your studies and professional development can help you:

  • Increase your earning potential.
  • Progress your career.
  • Convert to a new career.
  • Take a discipline-specific course.


The 10% course fee discount is available to graduates of any Cranfield University award-bearing course; or a student who has completed at least one module for which they have obtained credits. University regulations in respect of the Transfer to a Higher Award will apply at the point of entry.

Please indicate your eligibility for the 10% alumni discount when you complete your application, e.g. the title of the degree and year of graduation.

Apprenticeship Levy funded programmes in Cranfield Defence and Security are also eligible for a discount on any portion of the fees not covered by the levy funding.
