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.
- For taught courses, see the postgraduate course pages.
- For research courses, see the research fees page.
Where a fee is not directly quoted for the part-time course, contact the relevant faculty office direct.
For information about how to pay your tuition fees, download our Money Matters booklet (PDF) or read our guidance pages. Please note that 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.
Students studying for an equivalent or lower qualification (ELQ students)
Full-time UK and EU students: the fee charged will be a minimum of £5,380*. Where the standard fee for the course is higher than £5,380 (for example, MBA courses) the higher fee will apply. For part-time UK and EU students, the fee charged will be pro-rata the above 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.
*this is the 2013/14 rate and may increase for future academic years
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.
