Tuition Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries

Tuition Fees

Tuition Fees

The University works hard to ensure that tuition remains accessible to students from all backgrounds, and although fees do vary on a course-by-course basis, the guideline fees for the 2023/24 academic year are set: Home Students £9,250 per year of full-time undergraduate study; EU/International Students £13,450 per year of full-time undergraduate study.

The figures are intended as a guideline; more detailed information can be found by clicking on the 'Visit Website' button below.

Repayments of your Tuition Fee and Maintenance Loan will start in the April after you’ve graduated or left higher education. At the time of writing (January 2023), the student loan repayment threshold for English-resident students is £25,000 a year. The amount you repay each month is linked to your income, so what you pay back depends on what you earn. You’ll pay 9% of any income you earn over the threshold. If you’re earning less than the threshold, your student loan repayments won’t be deducted.
