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 2019/20

Each year UCLan sets its annual tuition fee levels, discounts, 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 in some of our Schools.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR EU STUDENTS
