Academic Fees and Financial Support

Academic fees must be paid by or on behalf of all registered students at the University. The fee includes charges for tuition, examination, registration and a contribution towards the cost of student amenities. It does not include fees for accommodation,meals and other personal items.

Academic fees are charged at the start of each year and are subject to inflationary increases for each year of your course as determined by the University. Students whose course incorporates an intercalated year will be required to pay lower fees for the year in which they are away from the University. Please see the Student Finance website for more details.

Students paying fees directly to the University are given the option to pay in instalments. Details are available from the Student Finance website.

Fee Levels for 2017-18: Home/EU Undergraduate 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.
  • Loans are repaid once you have a job and are earning more than £21,000 a year.
