How much is the University of Birmingham tuition fee?
For students applying for the 2017/18 academic year*
Maximum tuition fees are currently set by the Government at £9,000 per academic year, which has been the tuition fee charged by the University of Birmingham. The Government has indicated that, in respect of the 2017/2018 academic year, it will increase maximum tuition fees to £9,250.
If the Government increases maximum tuition fees, then tuition fees payable for the 2017/18 academic year will be the maximum permitted. If it does not increase maximum tuition fees, then your tuition fees payable for the 2017/18 academic year will be £9,000.
For students admitted in the 2017/18 academic year and onwards, tuition fees payable for each subsequent year of your programme will increase annually by the maximum rate permitted, which the Government has indicated will be in line with the RPIX measure of inflation.
The University will, usually in September of each year, publish on this webpage the tuition fees which it will charge for the next academic year. You are advised to check the website for further details of any increases in tuition fees in future years.
For students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive)
The Home rate of tuition fees for all full-time undergraduate courses for students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive) is set at £9,000 and will remain at this rate for the duration of the programme.
