Fees and Funding for Taught Masters Degrees

Warwick can confirm that, for EU students starting their studies with us in Autumn 2019, 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 2019 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.

Don't forget that you can get a Postgraduate Loan for our Masters courses.

Fees 2020/21

Home/EU Course Fees: Full-time Part-time International Course Fees: Full-time
Standard Warwick Home/EU Taught Postgraduate Students £9,460 £4,730 Standard Warwick International Student £27,160

Regional bursaries of 20% reduction in course fees will automatically be offered to students from Latin America and the Caribbean. Students must be nationals of, and domiciled in, Latin America or the Caribbean.

New for 2020 entry - Warwick alumni will automatically be offered a 10% reduction in fees. The reduction will be applied to the net fee once any scholarships or other bursaries have been applied.
