Tuition fees

Your tuition fees cover a range of University services that enhance your learning. Find out about your tuition fees and how to pay them, so you're well-prepared to start your course.

Fee status

Your fee status determines whether you pay home or international tuition fees. You must meet certain requirements to be eligible for home fee status. If you don't meet the home fee status criteria, you'll have to pay international fees.

When the UK left the European Union (EU), the UK government announced changes to:

  • tuition fee regulations, and
  • eligibility for student finance.

These changes apply to EU, EEA and Swiss nationals. These students are now generally classed as 'international' for fee purposes. This does not include Irish nationals living in the UK or Republic of Ireland.

Some EU students may qualify for home fee status. They must:

  • have pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme
  • meet specific eligibility requirements.

Find more information about student finance. You get further details on fee status from UKCISA.

How much are the tuition fees

Tuition fees are payable for each year you're at university. We at NTU review our tuition fees every year. As a guide, and to help you plan your finances, the expectation is that:

  • our tuition fees may increase for subsequent years of study, and
  • these increases will be in line with inflation, and as specified by the UK government.

For the 2022/23 academic year, tuition fees are £9,250 for:

  • full-time home undergraduate students
  • full-time home foundation degree students

The tuition fee for part-time courses may vary from course to course. For the 2022/23 academic year, the maximum part-time home tuition fee is £6,935. This sum is subject to parliamentary approval. For more information on part-time fees, contact our Admissions team.

Placement year

You'll pay a reduced fee for a year if you:

  • have a year-long placement as part of a sandwich course, or
  • spend a year studying or working abroad.

The fee for students who are on a placement year for the 2022/23 academic year is £1,385. This figure is subject to parliamentary approval.

We haven't yet confirmed our tuition and placement-year fees for the 2023/24 academic year.

International students

See our international pages for more information about:

  • international undergraduate fees, and
  • your payment options.

How to pay your fees

You pay your fees to the University every year of your course.

Undergraduate loans

Most full-time and part-time home students don't have to pay any fees up front as you can get a Tuition Fee Loan. This is a loan from the government, which it pays directly to the University to cover the full cost of your course.

For more details about loans, see our guide to funding your studies.

Other methods of funding

Find out about your payment options. These include instalments if:

  • you're paying your tuition fees yourself, or
  • your fees are being covered by a third party.
