Money matters

As a postgraduate student you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your programme of study.

The Government has now laid secondary legislation before Parliament to allow postgraduate pre-registration nursing, midwifery and allied health professions students to access student loans to cover both tuition and living costs. This aligns to the undergraduate offer already in place. Visit for more information.

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.


Fees vary according to the type of programme you choose (e.g. research or taught; classroom-laboratory- or workshop-based; clinical) and whether you are a student from the UK or overseas.
