Fees and Funding for Taught Masters Degrees

Warwick can confirm that, for EU students starting their studies with us in Autumn 2018, we will be protecting tuition fees from any increases linked to a change in fee status after the UK leaves the EU. This means that those enrolling in 2018 will continue to be charged fees at the same rate as UK students for the duration of their studies.

SLS Excellence Scholarships - five scholarships will be offered to high achieving students.

Dont forget that you can get a Postgraduate Loan for our Masters courses.

Fees 2018/19

Home/EU Course Fees: Full-time Part-time International Course Fees: Full-time
Standard Warwick Home/EU Taught Postgraduate Students £8,580 £4,290 Standard Warwick International Student £24,640

Regional bursaries of 20% reduction in course fees will automatically be offered to students from Latin America and the Caribbean.
