Undergraduate tuition fees

Tuition fees are one of the main costs of studying at university.

Tuition fees cover the cost of your teaching, assessment and operating University facilities such as the library, IT equipment and access to study and personal support facilities. University fees and charges can be paid in advance and there are several methods of payment, including online payments and payment by installment.

The annual fee is due at the start of each academic year of your studies but most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this cost and delay repayment until they have graduated and they are earning a salary.

Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to increase to take into account inflationary pressures. Please take a look at our courses to see specific fee information for each course.

The table below shows tuition fees for the 2020-21 academic year.
