For undergraduate students applying for the 2019/20 academic year
The UK Government has confirmed that tuition fees for September 2019 entry will remain capped at £9,250, and the University of Birmingham will charge the maximum approved tuition fee per year. If you are studying full-time, the fees for your first year of study will therefore be £9,250. If you are studying part time, your course fees will be capped at £6,935. For more information visit the gov.uk website.
The UK Government has also confirmed EU students will continue to be eligible for 'home fee status' with the tuition fee for September 2019 entry, and so fees for full-time EU students will be capped at £9,250 for the first year of study. Part time course fees will also be capped at £6,935. In addition, EU students 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.
The fees for the first year of your course for 2019 entry and any other costs associated with the course are set out on the course pages of our website. Please keep referring to our Fees page on our website for up-to-date information.
Information on fees and funding for part-time students is available on the Undergraduate fees and funding pages of our website.
Paying your fees
It is your responsibility to make sure your fees and all expenses relating to your course are paid in full and on time. The University’s requirements on the payment of fees can be found in Regulation 5 (PDF - 140Kb). If you are paying your tuition fees yourself, you must either pay the full amount at the beginning of the academic year or apply to pay by instalments using the University direct debit scheme. If you are a sponsored student, you are responsible for payment if your sponsor does not pay your tuition fees.
Unless your offer letter says otherwise, the tuition fee quoted in your offer letter does not include any charges for residential accommodation, examination re-sits, extensions to the designated period of study, travelling expenses or any other miscellaneous expenses which may be related to your course (such as the cost of field trips). Details of any other miscellaneous expenses you are likely to incur on your course are indicated on the course pages of our website.
If you do not pay your tuition fees in full or on time, the University may impose penalties which are set out in Regulation 5 (PDF - 140Kb). As a result, you may not be allowed to progress on your course or you may be expelled from the University. The University may also take legal action against you to recover any unpaid fees.
If you do not pay any other (non-tuition) fees or other sums you owe, the University may take action to recover those sums. This may include withholding any service for which you owe money (for example, if you do not pay library fines you may not be allowed to access the Library or use some or all of its facilities) or taking legal action against you. However, you should note that if as part of your course you spend time in another university, institution or organisation in the UK or abroad, the rules and regulations of that university, institution or organisation will apply to you while you are there. Some overseas institutions might impose academic sanctions, for example, they might refuse to release your marks, if you do not pay either tuition fees or any other fees or costs (such as accommodation or meal plan fees) which you owe them. This might mean that you are not able to complete your course as planned.
If you withdraw from your programme, you may still be required to pay your tuition fees. The policy on how withdrawal date affects your fee liability is available on our fees pages. This does not affect your statutory cancellation rights (see below).
