Important news

EU students in 2020-21

The UK Government has indicated that EU home students starting in the academic year 2020-21 will pay the same fees and have the same eligibility for loans and grants as UK home students for the duration of their course. The situation for students starting in 2021-22 is not yet known and may be affected by UK Government policy following the outcome of any negotiations regarding the UK’s exit from the European Union. More information is on our  EU referendum pages.

Fees

Fee Regulations


These are the formal Fee Regulations for the University. These are the rules setting out what fees must be paid to the University and what may happen if they are not paid.

There are a small number of exceptions to the general rules for fees and these are listed here:

UK/EU Undergraduate

The University reserves the right to increase tuition fees by inflation (RPI excluding mortgage interest payments) and/or the maximum permitted by law or Government policy (which may exceed the rate of inflation) in the second and subsequent years of your course. If we intend to exercise this right to increase tuition fees, a notification will be placed on these web pages by the end of June in the academic year before the one in which we intend to exercise that right.

Undergraduate courses 2020-21

 

UK/EU postgraduate taught

Tuition fees for postgraduate taught courses vary depending on the course.  The University reserves the right to increase tuition fees in the second and subsequent years of your course. For continuing students, increases will be no more than 5% or 3% above the Retail Prices Index (RPI) at the time the decision is made, whichever is the higher. If we intend to exercise this right to increase tuition fees, a notification will be placed on these web pages by the end of June in the academic year before the one in which we intend to exercise that right.

Postgraduate courses 2020-21


 

 

UK/EU postgraduate research

Tuition fees for postgraduate research courses vary depending on the course.  The University reserves the right to increase tuition fees in the second and subsequent years of your course. For home students undertaking a PhD, the fees are currently linked to the maximum fee determined by Research Councils UK and this is likely to continue. If this policy does not continue, and for other continuing students, increases will be no more than 5% or 3% above the Retail Prices Index (RPI) at the time the decision is made, whichever is the higher. If we intend to exercise this right to increase tuition fees, a notification will be placed on these web pages by the end of June in the academic year before the one in which we intend to exercise that right

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.


EU home student

Up to 2020-21, if you are an EU national and meet the residence requirements within the European Economic Area (or Switzerland) you will be eligible for home fee status.

However, the situation in 2021-22 and beyond may be affected by UK Government policy following the outcome of any negotiations regarding the UK’s proposed exit from the European Union. More information is on our EU referendum pages.



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.

If you are unsure about which fee category you fall into, please contact the Student Recruitment Enquiries Centre.


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.
