Tuition fees must be paid by all registered students at the University. The tuition fee is a charge for study related costs and does not include charges for accommodation. For information about other costs associated with your course, for example books and equipment, please take a look at your course information page.
Tuition fees are charged at the start of each academic year. Students paying fees directly to the University are given the option to pay in instalments. Tuition fees for courses that incorporate an intercalated year or a year abroad are available from the Student Finance website.
- Following the recent government announcement, that there will be no changes to the tuition fee caps for 2020-21, the tuition fee for students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes) for the 2020-21 academic year will be £9,250 (£6,750 for 2+2 courses and WBS Foundation Year 1).
- 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 ).

Tuition Fee Loan
You can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover your tuition fees. It is non-means tested, which means the amount you can receive is not based on your household income. The Loan is paid directly to the University so, if you choose to take the full Tuition Fee Loan, you won’t have to set up any payments.
You can apply for a Maintenance Loan towards your living costs such as accommodation, food and bills. This loan is means-tested, so the amount you receive is partially based on your household income and whether you choose to live at home or in student accommodation.
The table below shows how much maintenance loan you can expect you get, depending on your household income. Please note, these figures are subject to parliamentary approval.

|Students who live in student accommodation||Students who live at home|

|£62,249 and above||£4,289|

Repaying your Loans
Your loans are repaid gradually once you are working and earning over £26,575 a year (from April 2020). Repayments are affordable, with a graduate earning £30,000 a year paying around £25.00 a month. If your income falls below the threshold, your repayments will stop until you are earning over £26,575 again.
For more information about repaying your student loan visit the Student Loans Company’s dedicated repayments website.
Extra support from Warwick
We provide extra financial support for qualifying students from lower income families. The Warwick Bursary is an annual award paid in termly instalments to help with the costs of studying and is paid directly into your bank account for each year of your course.

Additional Bursaries are targeted at students most in need. In 2020-21, the University will pay an additional £1,000 a year to qualifying Warwick Bursary students who are either a Care Leaver or from a Foyer background; a mature student aged 21 or over at the start of their undergraduate course in 2020-21; in receipt of Disabled Students’ Allowance, Childcare Grant or Adult Dependants Grant from the UK government, or classed as an independent student for student financial support.
We provide several different undergraduate scholarships. These include sporting and musical bursaries, and scholarships offered by commercial organisations. Check the ‘Other Funding Opportunities’ pages on our website for details.
EU students starting their course in 2020-21 academic year can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to cover your tuition fees. It is non-means tested, which means the amount you can receive is not based on your household income.

The Loan is repayable once you have completed or left your studies and are earning above a certain amount. For more information about the loan and the application process, visit www.gov.uk/studentfinance.

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 tuition 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.
