Postgraduate Tuition Fees

These are the tuition fees for taught postgraduate courses, including MA, PgDip, PgCert and GradDip.

Tuition fees for research degrees, including MPhil and PhD can be found on our Research Degrees pages.

  • Whether you're charged the Home/EU or International tuition fee depends on your fee status.
  • The tuition fees quoted on this page cover the cost of the whole course and are not quoted per academic year. Students who will be starting their course between September 2019 and August 2020 can see their tuition fees in the 2019/20 section, whereas students who started between September 2018 and August 2019 can see their tuition fee in the 2018/19 section.
  • The tuition fees for each specific course (including a small number of courses which are not covered by this page) and any additional fees can be seen on individual course pages.

Funding your tuition fees and living costs

How you'll pay for your course and fund the other costs related to studying are important to consider. See our example living costs to get an idea of how your living costs might look while studying at UAL.
