Fee information

Fees are effective from 1 August in the academic year in which you begin your studies. Most fees increase each year, in line with inflation. All fees are in pounds sterling (£) and are for one academic year, not the whole course.

How to pay

International students (who are non-EU) must pay at least 50% of the tuition fees before or at enrolment**. With current visa regulations, it is advisable that this is paid to the University as early as possible to speed up your visa application.

The remaining 50% must be paid on receipt of invoice or by instalment in line with the University's payment plan. Find out more:
