Tuition fees are paid to the University to cover the cost of your study.

Use our Fees and Funding Calculator to estimate how much your studies may cost you in your first year, and what funding may be available to you.
Additionally, your tuition fee will depend on your fee status.
For each course, there is a Home/EU tuition fee and an International tuition fee. The tuition fee you pay depends on whether the outcome of your fee assessment is Home/EU fee status or International fee status.
Assessing your fee status
The University follows UK government regulations when assessing your fee status. These set out specific categories of people who qualify for Home/EU fee status which are summarised on the UK Council for International Affairs (UKCISA) website.
Different criteria will apply depending on whether you are studying a Higher Education (HE) or Further Education (FE) course. Higher Education includes both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, whereas Further Education includes courses such as the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design.
When you apply for your course, the University's admissions staff will use information that you provide about yourself and your family to determine your fee status. You may be asked to complete a Fee Status Assessment Form and provide additional information or supporting evidence such as passports, official letters, and immigration documents.
Re-assessing your fee status
If you are a current UAL student with International fee status, but believe that you now fulfil the criteria for Home/EU fee status, please complete a Fee Status Assessment Form and send this with relevant supporting evidence to our UK/EU Admissions department (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Seeking advice on fee status
The Student Advice Service an provide advice to those with complex fee status queries, or those who require assistance in completing their Fee Status Assessment Form and providing the necessary supporting evidence.
If you have already studied a Higher Education course it may affect the fees you pay and your student finance entitlement. Find out more on our Previous Study page.
Although EU fee status students pay the same tuition fee amount as Home fee status students, EU fee status students are usually eligible for more limited funding. See our Further Education Funding, Undergraduate Funding and Postgraduate (Taught) Funding pages for more information.
