How much is the University of Birmingham tuition fee?
The University of Birmingham is committed to providing the highest quality of teaching and learning, and delivering sustained investment in your wider student experience, therefore, the Home rate of tuition fees for all full-time undergraduate courses is set at £9,000.
Please note that the Home rate of tuition fees for full-time undergraduates registered before the 2012/13 academic year will be £3,465 and will increase only in line with inflation in subsequent years of study.
Do all students have to pay a tuition fee?
All students are required to pay a tuition fee, with the exception of those who have been accepted onto approved health care profession courses. These students will have their £9,000 tuition fees paid in full by the NHS. This covers courses such as Nursing, Physiotherapy and the final year of the undergraduate Medicine course.
Arrangements for funding for students starting their studies in 2016/17 and beyond are yet to be announced.

What support is available to help me pay my tuition fee?
Tuition Fee Loans are offered by the government via the Student Loans Company (SLC) to all Home undergraduate students, giving you the opportunity to borrow any amount up to the full cost of your tuition fees.

Do I have to pay a tuition fee if I’m on a placement year as part of my course?
If you are classed as Home for tuition fee purposes and you are spending the whole of the academic year studying abroad or on an Erasmus industrial placement, then you will pay 15% of your agreed tuition fee for the placement year.
If you are classed as Home for tuition fee purposes and you are spending the whole of the academic year on a non-Erasmus industrial placement (either abroad or in the UK), then you will pay 20% of your agreed tuition fee for the placement year.

When and how do I pay the tuition fee?
Fees are payable at the start of your programme and we offer a range of different payment options. Alternatively, you can take out a loan to help you meet the cost of tuition, which will be paid to the University by your student finance agency on your behalf.
