International fees

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.

Fixed fees for international students

International students starting a research programme of study in the 2019/20 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 three instalments during the year. Find out more about paying tuition fees.
