Important news


New UK/EU undergraduates in 2018

The tuition fees for the first year of your course are likely to be £9,250.  The Government has yet to confirm formally how much we may charge and it is possible that it will be higher than this.

Fees may increase in later years as UK Government policy changes, but we'll always let you know by the end of June in the academic year before they do. 

If you are an EU home student starting in 2018 you will continue to be eligible for any relevant student loans and grants for the duration of your course, even if your course ends after the UK has left the EU.


UK/EU undergraduates starting before 2017

Tuition fees will remain at £9,000 for the duration of your course, in line with the offer that you received from us.


New UK/EU postgraduates in 2018

If you are an EU home student starting in 2018 you will be able to apply for any relevant student loans and grants, including research council funding, for the duration of your course, even if your course ends after the UK has left the EU.

The fee status of EU students in future years may be affected by UK Government policy following the outcome of any negotiations regarding the UK’s proposed exit from the European Union. For the latest information please see our EU referendum pages.

Definitions

UK home student

A home student is defined as a student who meets certain residency conditions (the same conditions apply to eligibility for UK Government student financial support).  Usually this means you have an unrestricted right to enter and remain in the UK and you have been ordinarily resident in the UK for three years prior to the start of your course.  None of this time must have been spent in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of receiving full-time education. Visit the Directgov website for further information.

You are an EU national, or the relevant family member of a non-UK EU national, who is in the UK as a self-sufficient person or as a student, or the relevant family member of a UK national.  

You must have been ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area and/or Switzerland and/or the overseas territories for the three years before the first day of the first academic year of the course.

You must not have been resident wholly or mainly for the purpose of receiving full-time education.


International student

If you do not fall under the home UK or home EU fee definitions, then you will be classed as an international student.


Undergraduate

If you are taking an undergraduate course, you will pay the undergraduate fee as outlined in the undergraduate courses list.


Postgraduate

If you are taking a postgraduate course, you will pay the postgraduate fee as outlined in the postgraduate taught courses or the postgraduate research list.
