Undergraduate Tuition Fees

These are the tuition fees charged per year for undergraduate courses including BA, BSc, Foundation Degree and Integrated Masters.

The tuition fee that you are charged depends on your fee status (i.e. Home/EU or International).

The University intends to increase its fees to £9250 for 2017/18 new Home and EU undergraduate fee payers, if the proposed changes to legislation permitting inflationary-level increases are implemented. This fee will apply to students commencing their first year of study with the University in 2017/18 (regardless of point of entry) and tuition fees may be subject to further annual inflationary increases for any subsequent years, subject to the applicable regulatory requirements and the University’s terms and conditions.
