Postgraduate Taught Courses
Postgraduate Research Courses
Important note for Home/European Union Students studying for an Equivalent or Lower Qualification (ELQ)
The Government has announced that it will no longer provide public funding for some students who are studying for a qualification that is equivalent to or lower than one they already possess. In such case the University will charge a higher fee than the one listed in these tables. For Undergraduate courses in 2009-10, there will be a supplement of £4,000 over and above the fees listed in the Undergraduate tables; for Postgraduate courses in 2009-10, there will be a supplement of £2,600. If you are unsure of whether you will be liable for the higher rate of fee, you may seek advice from the Admissions Office.
Some courses are exempt from the Government's policy. This includes initial teacher training courses; courses where the primary purpose is to improve the effectiveness of teachers, lecturers or trainers; courses for which an NHS bursary is payable; undergraduate courses which leads to a first registerable qualification with the General Medical Council, Nursing and Midwifery Council, Health Professions Council (including the professions of dietician and physiotherapist), General Social Care Council, or Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons; full-time undergraduate courses which lead to registration with the Architects Registration Board. Students who are in receipt of the Disabled Studentsí Allowance (DSA) are also exempt.
Postgraduate students studying for an equivalent or lower qualification on courses in the Business School who are liable for fees in excess of £7,500 for a Masters course (pro-rata for a Diploma or Certificate) will not be required to pay the supplement.
The policy does not apply to postgraduate research students or to international students.
