Postgraduate research fees

Fees for all postgraduate research degrees starting in 2019.

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.

Home/EU/CI fees will be subject to increase each year, International fees are fixed for the duration of your course.

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