We charge an annual tuition fee. Fees for 2019/20 are as follows:
UK/EU: £4,320 full-time; £2,160 part-time*
International: £17,040 full-time; £8,520 part-time
The same fees apply to both campus-based and distance learning study. The distance learning programme fee also includes a fully-funded visit to campus for each full year of the programme.
The above fees quoted are for one year only; for those studying over two or more years, tuition fees will also be payable in subsequent years of your programme.
* For UK/EU postgraduate research students the University fee level is set at Research Council rates and as such is subject to change. The final fee will be announced by Research Councils UK in spring 2019.
Eligibility for UK/EU or international fees can be verified with Admissions. Learn more about fees for international students.
For EU students applying for the 2020/21 academic year
The UK Government has confirmed that EU students will continue to be eligible for 'home fee status' for entry in September 2020, and will continue to have access to financial support available via student loans for the duration of their course. For more information take a look at the gov.uk website.
