Fees and funding

We want to ensure that, wherever possible, financial circumstances do not become a barrier to studying at Warwick.

Undergraduate Funding for Home/EU students

  • Following the recent government announcement that there will be no changes to the tuition fee caps for 2018-19, the tuition fee for students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes) for the 2018-19 academic year will remain at £9,250.
  • The University may increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. It is anticipated that such increases will be linked to RPI (the Retail Price Index excluding mortgage interest payments).
  • 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.
  • Home and EU students studying for their first higher education qualification can currently apply for a loan to cover the full cost of the tuition fee for each year of their course.
  • Home students can apply for a living cost loan to help with expenses such as rent, food and books.
  • The government has announced their intention to increase the repayment threshold to £25,000 from April 2018.

Financial support available

The following information illustrates the support available to home students in the 2017-18 academic year only. This will be updated as soon as we receive details of tuition fee and maintenance support for 2018-19.

Tuition fee loans

If you are a home or EU fee paying student you can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the full cost of your fees under the current government tuition fee loan scheme for academic year 2017-18. This loan is repaid gradually once you are working and earning over £21,000 a year. Repayments are affordable, with a graduate earning £24,000 a year paying around £22 a month. If your income stops or falls below the £21,000 threshold, your repayments will stop until you are back in work again and earning over £21,000.

Extra support from Warwick

We provide extra financial support for qualifying students from lower income families (see table below for 2017–18 figures). The Warwick Bursary is an annual payment to help with the costs of studying and is paid directly into your bank account for each year of your course.

Family income Warwick bursary Additional bursary
£0 - £16,000 £2,000 £1,000
£16,001 - £25,000 £1,500 £1,000
£25,001 - £35,000 £1,000 £1,000

We provide several different undergraduate scholarships. These include sporting and musical bursaries, and scholarships offered by commercial organisations.

International Students

For new international students, a limited number of scholarships may be available, and further information can be obtained from the International Office website. You may also be eligible for financial help from your own government, from the British Council or from other funding agencies. Information on scholarships can usually be obtained from the Ministry of Education in the student’s own country, or from the local British Council office.

It is very important that you do not travel to the University or to the UK until you have been formally notified that you will be admitted to Warwick and you are certain that you have sufficient funds to pay for all of your academic fees and all of your living expenses. All offers of a place at the University are made on the understanding that you will be able to meet all these costs in full.
