Fees and Funding


Fees are payable for each year of registration, and your fee status will be assessed by the School of Psychology upon receipt of an application for undergraduate study.  Further information can be found on the Student Fees and Finance page.


Successful applicants will require funding to cover both fees and living expenses.

A single student living in Nottingham will need a minimum of £700 per month (£8,400 per year) to cover basic living expenses such as accommodation costs, heating, food, daily travel, books, equipment and other necessities. This figure is given as a guide only, as the amount you actually spend will depend upon where you choose to live and your personal lifestyle.

General information about funding for students can be found on the Student Services Financial Support site.

International Student Scholarship

The Scholarship is offered for the first year that the student is registered on the BSc Psychology undergraduate degree programme, with joint honours students receiving a pro rata amount. It is also offered in each successive year that the student is registered on the degree programme, provided an average mark of at least 60% is achieved in the previous year.

The Scholarship has a value of £1,000 and will be paid as a cheque at the end of each academic year in May/June.  Please note that 'International' refers to students who are classified as overseas for fees purposes and is not receiving a University of Nottingham scholarship. This School of Psychology scholarship cannot be used in conjunction with any other scholarships or bursaries and is only applicable to international students that have external funding. This scholarship is extended each year that the International student is registered with the School of Psychology.
