In this section you can find information about the tuition fee rates for current, past and future academic years and a link to the range of scholarships and funding opportunities we offer .These pages also contain information on the refund policy, miscellaneous charges and staff tuition fees.

  • You can make payments towards your tuition fees and accommodation fees in a number of ways.

Sponsored Students

You must provide an official letter from your sponsor as proof that they will pay tuition fees. Please email a copy of this letter to the Tuition Fees team or hand in a copy to the Infohub. If your sponsor fails to make payment for your fees, you will become responsible for payment and we will invoice you directly for the outstanding amount.

Repeat or Previous Assistance

All students should be aware that eligibility to receive support is normally based on the minimum period of study required for your degree programme - 4 years in most cases (except, for example, MBChB, MChem, MEng and programmes involving a compulsory year abroad or industrial placement, where 5 years are required).  If you have already had support from public funds - for example, for an HND which does not give you entry to year 2 of the degree programme - your support may be for 3 years only, so you would not get support for the first year of your degree programme and you would have to pay the tuition fees yourself.  If in doubt, ask your Local Authority about that now.

Important Funding Information

It is essential that changes of subject that necessarily involve an extra year of study be reported to the funding body at the time the change is made. You should always indicate an actual or intended honours programme on your application to the LA, unless you are quite certain that you do not intend to pursue an honours programme. However, any student whose degree intention changes (eg from BTh to BD, BEng to MEng, Non-Honours to Honours) after Registration and who as a consequence will require an extra year of study should contact the Registry as soon as possible so that your LA may be notified.

Further Support Available

Certain groups of students may also be entitled to claim supplementary grants or allowances. Further information concerning eligibility is available from your Student Finance authority. There is a Hardship Fund which is administered by the Student Support Services section of the University and intended to help students facing unexpected financial difficulties. Assistance is not available to pay tuition fees. The application forms are available to students at the start of session from the InfoHub and any award from this fund is not repayable.

EU Students

New EU undergraduate students commencing their studies from September 2021 will be classified as International students for the purpose of tuition fees. In order to help mitigate the impact of Brexit the University has announced a new Undergraduate EU Scholarship.

EU Students who started their study during or prior to the 2020/21 academic year, and who have been classed as eligible for the Home tuition fee rate, will remain classified as eligible for this rate for the duration of their studies.

International Students

When you are  studying overseas, it is important that you understand all the costs involved. It is essential to budget for your studies prior to leaving your home country and to arrange all your funding for BOTH your tuition fees and your living costs. To help you budget we have included some information on the cost of study here.

All Sponsored Students

All sponsored students must submit written evidence on letterhead paper as proof that their tuition fees will be paid by a sponsoring authority, otherwise the University will assume that the student is personally liable for the full payment of tuition fees.

Also, if the award-giving body fails to meet the cost of tuition fees, the student will become personally liable for full payment. In these cases a letter will be sent to notify the student that a personal invoice is about to be sent if the sponsor does not pay within 30 days.

All Students - Debt

If tuition fees, or any other debts to the University, are not paid by the time all examinations and assessments are passed, you will not be permitted to graduate.

Students with debt from a previous academic year are not permitted to re-register with the University. Payment in full is required and must be made prior to registration in September.
