Your tuition fees will usually cover compulsory course costs, such as field trips and laboratory clothing. A contribution may be necessary towards certain elements, these additional costs can be found on the course page.
You can apply for a student loan to help pay for tuition fees if you live in the UK or a European Union country. You may also be eligible for a loan for living costs.
You will not have to pay your fees upfront.
If you live in England*, you can get a loan to cover your tuition fees. You will only start repaying this once you are earning over £21,000 per year.
The standard annual fee for UK/EU students commencing full time undergraduate degrees (including Foundation Year courses) in 2016-17 will remain at £9,000.
* 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.
For 2016 and beyond, we will continue our package of direct student support, with a wider choice of support options available to students.
You will be able to choose between a bursary, partial fee waiver or a combination of both. This choice will be available in each year of study for which you are eligible for support.
Find out more about University bursaries and eligibility criteria.
If you have any questions about fee waivers, bursaries or other student support, please contact our Student Services Centre before you enrol.
