International fees

We generally charge two levels of fee. A ‘home’ fee applies for United Kingdom and European Union (EU) students. A higher ‘overseas’ fee applies for students from countries outside the EU. For full details and to check which fee applies to you, check your fee status.

Fixed fees for international students

International students starting a research programme of study in the 2016/17 academic year will pay the same fixed fee for each year of their programme. Our fees for full-time study for international students from outside the EU include the full cost of tuition, examinations, Students' Union membership and research support expenses (where applicable).

Paying your fees

Fees are paid annually. For students starting their studies after September 2016 pay your fees in full by Monday 3 October 2016 to receive the one per cent discount or pay in two instalments during the year. Find out more about paying tuition fees.

Discount for prompt payment in full

We offer a one per cent discount on the personal element of tuition fees for full payments received by 3 October 2016 for students starting their studies after September 2016 (certain conditions apply).

Final-year/alumni 10 per cent discount
