How much is the University of Birmingham tuition fee?
For 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
For students applying for the 2019/20 academic year
The UK Government has confirmed EU students will continue to be eligible for 'home fee status' with the tuition fee for September 2019 entry capped at £9,250. In addition, EU students will continue to have access to financial support available via student loans for the duration of their course. Part time course fees will also be capped at £6,935. For more information take a look at the gov.uk website.
For students applying for the 2018/19 academic year*
Students applying from other EU countries currently pay the same tuition fee as UK students, and have access to the same Tuition Fee Loan provided by the UK government, which you will not have to start repaying back until after you have graduated and are in work earning over £21,000 per year. If any changes to law affect students from other EU countries, the latest information will be updated here.
For UK students beginning their studies in September 2018, the University of Birmingham will charge the maximum approved tuition fee per year. The fees for your first year of study will therefore be £9,250*.
The University will review tuition fees each year. If Parliament agree on an increase in tuition fees, the University will increase fees for each year of study normally in line with these changes. Student fees loans would also be expected to rise in line with any increase in the fee, to ensure that higher education remains affordable to all.
*provided this continues to be permitted by UK law
