Money matters

As a postgraduate student you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your programme of study. You may be able to apply for funding to help you cover your costs.

When planning your finances, you will also need to consider other expenses such as living costs, accommodation fees and study materials. Visit the University’s Postgraduate fees and funding page for more information about living costs.

Psychology offer bursaries to self-funding International students with excellent grades. For more details click the ‘Bursaries’ tab below.


Fees vary according to the type of programme you choose (e.g. research or taught; classroom-laboratory- or workshop-based; clinical). Fees charged for full-time non-EU international students include the full cost of tuition, examinations, Students’ Union membership and research support expenses.
