Fees for international students

The University charges an annual tuition fee, which covers the cost of your tuition, examination and graduation, and includes membership of the Guild of Students. Fees are payable at the start of your programme.

Do I pay home or international tuition fees?

UKCISA provides information on tuition fees to help you assess your fee status. This guide should give you a clear idea of whether you have a home or international student status.

The decision as to whether you will receive home fee status will be made by the University Admissions department. You need to meet all the requirements to be given home fee status. 

Tuition fee costs

The cost of your tuition fee depends on the programme you choose to study, and the level at which you study. If you are made an offer to study by the University, the yearly tuition fee will be quoted on your offer letter.
