We charge an annual tuition fee. Fees for 2017/18:
Home/EU: £4,195 full-time; £2,098 part-time
Overseas: £15,210 full-time
Please note: the fee is the same whether studying on campus or by distance learning. The fee for the distance learning programme also includes a fully-funded annual visit to campus for each full year of your programme (every two years for part-time students).
The above fee quoted is for one year only; for those studying over two or more years, tuition fees will also be payable in subsequent years of your programme.
Eligibility for Home/EU or Overseas fees can be verified with Admissions. Learn more about fees for international students.
Tuition fees can either be paid in full or by instalments. Learn more about postgraduate tuition fees and funding.
Scholarships to cover fees and/or maintenance costs may be available. To discover whether you are eligible for any award across the University, and to start your funding application, please visit the University's Postgraduate funding database.
International students can often gain funding through overseas research scholarships, Commonwealth scholarships or their home government.
Students applying for the MA by Research programme may be eligible to apply for a postgraduate loan to help finance their studies. For those starting in the 2017/18 academic year, these government-backed student loans will provide up to £10,280 for Masters courses in all subject areas. Criteria, eligibility, repayment and application information are available on the UK government website.
