1      What is included

See Other Fees I May Have to Pay for further details

1.3

Any reference to fees means fees which are due between 1 August and 31 July of the relevant academic year.

 

2     Categories of Fees

2.1

Fees are charged according to whether you are a Home, European Union, International or Island student. The Island category covers students from the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. The definition of these categories is determined by government legislation, specifically The Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 (as amended) . The category you fall into, based on this legislation, is determined by an appropriate member of staff of the University under delegated responsibility from the Registrar. 

In the 2019-20 academic year EU home students will pay the same fees and have the same eligibility for loans and grants as UK home students. The situation in the 2020-21 academic year and 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. 

 

3     Fee Rates

3.1

The fees for home and international students for each course are given in the Fee tables. Fees for Island students are in the Exceptional Fees table.  Fees are published annually.

3.2

If you are an international student or a postgraduate Island student at one of the University of Nottingham UK campuses, the fee will be fixed at the level you were charged for the first year of your course except in the following cases: 

  • The fee may change if you change your course or campus.
  • If you are studying Medicine, where the undergraduate course has a different fee for the later years of the course, you will be charged the clinical fee applying in the year you commence the clinical part of the course and this will then be fixed for the remainder of your course.
  • If you are studying on a Foundation Year (Year 0), you will be charged the fee applying to Year 1 of your course (ie the Qualifying Stage) when you enter Year 1 and this will then be fixed for the remainder of your course.
  • If you are studying at the University of Nottingham International College you will be charged the fee applying to Year 1 of your course (ie the Qualifying Stage) when you enter Year 1 at the University of Nottingham and this will be fixed for the remainder of your course.
  • You are studying on a course leading to the award of an MBA.

3.3

If you are on a course which starts at one of the University's campuses in Asia and then continues in Nottingham, you will be charged the appropriate international fee for your period of study in Nottingham. This will be charged at the rate which applies in the year you started your course at the campus in Asia.

3.4

If you start a course wholly based at one of the University's campuses in Asia and are permitted to transfer to Nottingham, you will be charged the appropriate international fee for your period of study in Nottingham. This will be charged at the rate which applies in the year you start in Nottingham.

3.5

If you start a course at one of the University's campuses in Asia, come to Nottingham for a semester or year abroad and then are permitted to transfer to Nottingham to continue your course, you will be charged the appropriate international fee for your period of study in Nottingham. This will be charged at the rate which applies in the year you start studying in Nottingham. If the fee paid to the campus in Asia for the semester or year abroad was less than this fee, you will be required to make up the difference for that year.

4     Full-time Students

4.1

If you are a full-time student, you will be charged the appropriate fee as given in the Fee Tables in each year of your course. There are a few exceptions to this, such as students on a year abroad, which are listed in the Exceptional fees table. Your fee will be displayed on your Student Account once you have completed module registration.

 

5     Part-time and part-course students and students undertaking non-award bearing study

5.1

If you are a part-time student, a part-course student, or a student undertaking non-award bearing study, you will normally pay a fee that is proportional to the amount of study you are undertaking.  

5.2

If you are an undergraduate student, your fee will be calculated based on the number of credits you are undertaking as a proportion of the expected full-time credit load (normally 120 credits). Your fee will be displayed on your Student Account once you have completed module registration.  Any exceptions to this are listed in the Exceptional fees table.

5.3

In some circumstances you may be permitted to register for a full-time undergraduate course but study part-time. If this applies to you and you register for 60 or more credits but fewer than 100 credits then you will charged a proportion of the appropriate fee that is the same as the proportion of 120 credits you are undertaking during the year.

5.4

If you are a postgraduate taught student, your fee will be calculated based on the number of credits you are undertaking as a proportion of the expected full-time credit load (normally 180 credits). Your fee will be displayed on your Student Account once you have completed module registration.

5.5

If you are a postgraduate student and you have been granted Recognition of Other Learning, this will be taken into account in the calculation of the fee.

5.6

If you are a postgraduate research student studying part-time, you will normally be charged half of the appropriate full-time fee. Full-time and part-time status may change and the fee will be updated on a monthly basis. Any exceptions to this are listed in the Exceptional fees table.
