Find out about our fees, plus loans and other financial support that might be available to you.
When planning your finances, you will also need to consider other expenses such as living costs, accommodation fees and study materials. Our fees and funding section offers further information. Details of additional costs specific to your course can be found on the relevant course page.
Course fees for 2016/17 full-time UK and EU undergraduate students are typically £9,000 per year. Tuition fees for international students differ between each course. Most part-time courses cost 50% of the full-time fee.
If you are not sure whether you should pay UK/EU or international fees, you should check your fees status.
UK or EU students who have secured a student loan or are being funded by the NHS do not need to make the payment themselves, as we receive it automatically when you enrol. See the student loans tab for more details.
If you are paying your tuition fees yourself, you can do this by using our secure online payment facility or through our international bank transfer service. You may be eligible for a tuition fees discount if you pay your fees in advance.
If you have a sponsor who will be paying all or part of your tuition fees, use the fees sponsorship form to notify the Student Fees office.

* If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you will receive financial support for university from the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government or the Northern Ireland Executive (as appropriate). If you live in the EU and meet certain eligibility criteria, you can get a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees.

You will be asked to make your choice during the enrolment process. If you don't make a choice, the default will be option C.
Note that the choice you make during your enrolment is FINAL, and cannot be changed during 2016/17.
Students who fully complete our widening participation scheme Access to Southampton (A2S) may be eligible for a £1000 bursary in their first year of study. This bursary is separate from those available as part of the fee waiver package.
