Tuition Fees

Your tuition fees cover a range of University services that will enhance your learning. Here you’ll find information on your tuition fees and how to pay them so that you’re well-prepared for starting your course.

Fee status

Your fee status determines if you pay home or international tuition fees. In order to be eligible for home fee status, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. If you do not meet the home fee status criteria you are required to pay international fees.

As a result of the UK’s departure from the European Union (EU), the UK government announced changes to the tuition fee regulations and eligibility for student finance for EU, EEA and Swiss nationals for the 2021/22 academic year. EU / EEA and Swiss national students are generally classed as international for fee purposes. This does not include Irish nationals living in the UK or Republic of Ireland.

EU students with pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme may qualify for home fee status providing they meet specific eligibility requirements.

More information can be found on the student finance website.

Further information on fee status can be found on the UKCISA website.

How much are the tuition fees

Tuition fees are payable for each year that you are at university. The University reviews its tuition fees each year. As a guide, and to enable you to plan your finances, the expectation is that the University’s tuition fees may increase for subsequent years of study in line with inflation and as specified by the Government.

For the 2021/22 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 2021/22 academic year, the maximum home tuition fee is £6,935. For more information on part-time fees, please contact our Admissions team.

Placement year

If you have a year-long placement as part of a sandwich course or spend a year studying or working abroad, you pay a reduced fee for that year.

The fee for students who are on a placement year for the 2020/21 academic year is £1,385.

International students

See our international pages for more information about international undergraduate fees and 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 upfront as you can get a Tuition Fee Loan. This is a loan from the government that is paid 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 payment options including instalments if you're paying your tuition fees yourself or they are being covered by a third party.
