Money Matters

As a postgraduate student you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your programme of study. You may be able to apply for funding to help you cover your costs - check the ‘More postgraduate funding options’ link and the 'Funding' tab further down this page 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.

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.

Postgraduate Taught Fees

The full and part time tuition fees quoted are the fees you pay for each year of study. Full time PGT courses are usually charged for 1 year and part time courses are usually charged for 2 years making the cost of the course the same as the full time version. Any exceptions will be clearly shown on the course page.

If you repeat a period of study you will be charged additional tuition fees

Postgraduate Research Fees

The tuition fees quoted are the fees you pay for the academic year shown. PGR fees increase each year for all students (except students on the International fee rate - these are fixed). 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.

International Postgraduate Taught LLM Scholarships

Our International Postgraduate Taught LLM Scholarships are available to all students paying fees at the International rate.
We are delighted to offer scholarships of £3,000 to high-achieving applicants who have been offered a place on one of the School's LLM programmes starting September 2019.
These scholarships will be in the form of a tuition fee reduction and will be awarded to any student achieving a 1st classification (or equivalent approved by the University) in their Bachelor Degree studies.


  • These scholarships listed above are only for 2019 entry. If you are unable to take up your place in 2019 entry and subsequently re-apply for 2020 entry, scholarships will not automatically carry over.
  • These scholarships only apply to the Southampton Law School and will not apply if you change your programme to another School/Faculty.
  • Although you may apply for more than one scholarship, you can only receive one scholarship from the University.
  • Students must be paying their own tuition fees. Students in receipt of full external funding, e.g. Chevening Scholarships, are not entitled to a University scholarship also.
  • Only successful students will be notified if they have been awarded a scholarship. These students will receive an official reward letter to the email address provided on their scholarship application form.
  • All scholarships are subject to availability of funds and details given here are subject to change at any time.
