Financing Your Studies

UK and EU Tuition Fees

UK and EU tuition fees banner

Studying for a degree is a big investment in your future, but remember there is plenty of help available to make sure that you don’t have to worry about your fees until you’ve graduated. The tuition fees are covered by a tuition fee loan from the Government and we also have additional support packages available for students from low income households.

Tuition Fees & Information 2017/18

Each year UCLan sets its annual tuition fee levels, discounts, terms and conditions for all students who enrol and complete registration with the University.

NON-STANDARD TUITION FEES

Within the Schools some courses have Tuition Fees which are different to the standard rates. A detailed list of non-standard courses is available. (.xlsx, 13 Kb)

Within the College of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences, the Schools of Medicine and Dentistry have a wide range of Non-Standard fees. A detailed list of tuition fees for these schools is available.

TUITION FEES IN FUTURE ACADEMIC YEARS

The University of Central Lancashire proposes to increase its 2017-18 tuition fees by the Retail Price Index inflation rate as provided for in our Tuition Fees Policy. This inflationary increase is subject to the Government implementing the Teaching Excellence Framework and the Fees Regulator's requirements. Regulated full-time tuition fees for all Home and EU undergraduates starting in September 2017 will increase from £9,000 to £9,250. The equivalent part-time fees for these courses will also increase for students starting in September 2017 from £1,500 per 20 credits studied to £1,540 per 20 credits studied. Whilst these inflationary fee increases in tuition fees and student support loans have been announced by the Minister, they are still subject to formal parliamentary approval.

For those students who start in 2016/17 on the fee structure above and remain on the same course in future years without a break, any increase in fees for second and subsequent years will be limited to increases in inflation based on the Consumer Price Index.
