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.
International students starting a research programme of study in the 2017/18 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).
Fees are paid annually and can be paid in one go or in two instalments during the year. Find out more about paying tuition fees.
We offer a one per cent discount on the personal element of tuition fees for full payments received by 2 October 2017 (certain conditions apply) for students starting their studies after September 2017. This discount applies to academic year 2017/18 only.
If you are a final-year student at the University of Southampton, or one of our alumni, you are entitled to a 10 per cent discount on postgraduate course fees.
