Tuition fee deposit for international students

International students who are planning to start a full-time postgraduate taught course will be required to pay a tuition fee deposit of at least £2,000 as part of the visa process.

We will waive the tuition fee deposit requirement for students who are fully sponsored by a recognised sponsor. If you are fully sponsored for your course fees, you must email us a copy of your sponsorship letter, quoting your full name and application ID number.

The University will only accept sponsorship letters from recognised sponsors such as governments, international businesses, universities, trusts and charities. Letters from friends or family members will not be accepted.


EU students

Following the UK's exit from the European Union, students from the EU, EEA or Switzerland starting courses in the 2023/24 index academic year will pay the same fees as international students. Irish nationals living in the UK or Republic of Ireland will be treated as UK students for fee purposes. For further guidance, check our EU referendum information.

UK nationals living in the EU, EEA and Switzerland may continue to be eligible for UK home fee status, when entering courses at UK universities until 31 December 2027 (subject to eligibility).


External funding or sponsorship

You must be able to provide written confirmation if your fees are being paid by an external funding provider. This includes the Student Loans Company, a research council, a national government or any other recognised sponsor.
