Fees, Finance & Funding

Choosing to spend part of your degree living, studying and even working abroad can truly enrich your university experience, not to mention increase your employability. You should see it as an investment for your future.

Tuition Fees are payable in full prior to the start of the course or programme. If you are a Tier 4 student then the fees will need to be paid prior to the issuing of your CAS.

Fees for EU and international students beginning their studies in 2023/24 are £16,500 per year to study an undergraduate degree (full time only), and either £16,500 per year (full time, 1 year) or £8,800 per year (part time, 2 years) to study a postgraduate degree. (Fees for 2023/24 are detailed below.)

We pride ourselves in being committed to offering students accessible and affordable quality programmes. Please note, fees are correct at the time of publication and may be subject to change.

*Excluding costs for international students who need a pre-sessional English course and ongoing in-year English language support.

All applications will be fee assessed and you will be contacted if any further information is required to establish your fee status.

Living costs vary depending on individual circumstances and lifestyle. We would recommend that a single student should budget around £7200 for one academic year to cover costs including rent, utilities, food, clothes, books, travel, and personal expenses for socialising and entertainment.
