UK/Home Tuition Fees

Each year we set our annual tuition fee levels, discounts and terms and conditions for all students who enrol and complete registration with the University. As well as offering standard fee rates the University’s diverse course portfolio means there are a range of non-standard fee rates on some of our programmes.

Undergraduate students

All UK full-time students can apply for a loan to cover their tuition fees. You need to apply via Student Finance England and if you and the course you are studying are eligible then the University is paid direct by student finance. The tuition fees that you see advertised are usually paid initially by the Government through the tuition fee loan, so you or your parents don’t have to save up beforehand.

Maintenance loans are also available from Student Finance England. You can apply for the loan to help with day to day costs, both if you are leaving home or if you are living with your parents. If you are eligible, a Maintenance loan can help with living costs such as rent and bills, the loan is based on your household income and is paid direct into your bank account, the loan will need to be paid back once you’ve graduated.

The process is really simple and you can find out more and apply at the Student Finance England website.

You only start to repay the loan once you are employed and earning enough. Visit the student loan repayment site for more information.

Students from Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland have different student support available.

Postgraduate taught students

If you’re thinking of studying a master’s degree, you could be eligible for a loan from the Government to help you study. You may also be eligible for a discount on the full fee, depending on where you’ve studied at undergraduate level.

If you’re thinking about a master’s degree, you could get up to £10,906, and those studying a doctoral degree could be entitled to up to £25,700.

Find out more about this product including eligibility, application and repayment information on the Student Finance England website.
