Postgraduate course tuition fees

Tuition fees for full-time postgraduate courses vary considerably. We advise that you contact the admissions department at an early stage to check the fee level.

Where a fee is not directly quoted for the part-time course, contact the relevant faculty office direct.

Teacher training (PGCE) and social work students may receive help with their tuition fees.

For information about how to pay your tuition fees, download our Money Matters booklet (PDF) or read our guidance pages.

Please note:

  • all postgraduate taught (masters) applicants*, from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), who pay international fees are required to pay a deposit in order to receive their Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS); and
  • students with a fee status of Overseas or Island must pay at least 50% of their tuition fees by cleared funds in order to enrol on their programme of study.

* exclusions apply.

Students studying for an equivalent or lower qualification (ELQ students)

Full-time UK and EU students studying for an equivalent or lower qualification (ELQ students) will be charged the ELQ fee. Where the standard fee for the course is higher than the ELQ fee, the higher fee will apply. For part-time UK and EU students, the fee charged will be pro-rata the ELQ fee amount.

This does not apply to full-fee paying international students, who pay the full international fee regardless of whether this course is an equivalent or lower level qualification.

Why we charge the fees we do

University postgraduate courses are funded in two ways:

  • one part is paid by central government, allocated through the Higher Education Funding Council for England/TDA; and
  • the other part is paid by or on behalf of the student.

The Government sets the basic full-time fee level payable by students classified for fees purposes as either home or European Union (EU).

The overseas fee reflects the full cost of the course. The University receives no additional government funding for such students.

Please note that Kingston University reserves the right to amend its tuition fees at any time.
