Student Profile

Paolo Pellegrinelli

Why did you choose to study at Kent Business School?

One of the main reasons I chose to study my Master’s at Kent Business School (KBS) was because I had studied here as an undergraduate. The Finance Master’s looked interesting and as a former student I received a tuition fee discount, so those two things combined with the fact that I had friends studying here made Kent the obvious choice for me.

What attracted you to your programme of study and why?

I studied business and economics at undergraduate level, but I wanted to specialise in finance and business in my Master’s. The Finance and Management programme offered a wide range of modules and allowed me to choose the areas that I most enjoyed studying.

Was the School supportive?

I received all the support that I asked for; whenever I emailed a lecturer with questions or a request, they were always very quick and helpful with their responses.

Kent Business School is pleased to offer a range of hardship bursaries to UK and International postgraduate taught students who require financial support in order to undertake and complete their master's studies.

KBS Bursaries are awarded on the grounds of financial hardship and in order for us to offer such a bursary there needs to be reference to this within the application essay. For example, some of our students are parents (especially single parents) or mature students with heavy financial commitments. Some students may be registered with a disability and further funding will contribute towards the costs of studying and/or living, whereas others may be from a low-income family and find they need to raise funds themselves. Some may find that even with working part-time (which can put a strain on studies) they simply cannot raise the funds needed.

To be eligible candidates must:

- Be self-funded
- Submit a maximum 750 word supporting statement describing your current financial circumstance, detailing why you require the extra funding and should be considered for a hardship bursary.
