    Fees for all postgraduate research courses starting from 1st August 2021 to 31st July 2022

    The tuition fees quoted are the fees you pay for the academic year shown (2021).

    Home and Channel Island PGR fees increase each year. (EU entrants from August 2021, and International students from 2015, will be on fixed fees so the fee will remain the same throughout your course.). The tuition fee increase will be published on the UoS website once they are announced by UK Research and Innovation in the Spring. Tuition fees are charged for every year of study.

    If you are an International student who started your postgraduate research programme in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 or 2020, you can find your tuition fee information on the Student Services website.

    Nominal Registration Fees

    Students who first enrolled before 1 August 2020: a single payment becomes payable if the student continues in nominal registration six months after transfer £110.
    Students who first enrolled on or after 1 August 2020: a single fee becomes payable at the start of the nominal registration period £250.

    Fees for all postgraduate research degrees starting in 2021.
