Undergraduate Tuition Fees

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

Whether a student is charged the Home/EU or International tuition fee depends on their fee status.

If you have already studied on a Higher Education course this may affect the fees you pay and your student finance entitlement. Find out more on our Previous Study page.
