*We are introducing fixed fees for international students. International students starting a research programme of study in the 2015/16 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).

Some courses have non-standard fees, which are set by the individual academic unit. These fees will be published shortly, in the meantime please contact the student fees office directly for details of non-standard fees.
