Undergraduate tuition fees and scholarships

If you've got the ability, we believe that finance shouldn't be a barrier to you studying with us.

That’s why we've invested in one of the most generous financial support packages in the UK. Approximately a third of all our students will receive bursaries of up to £2,500 per year - and many will receive more.

Home (UK/EU) and international tuition fees

Tuition fees for home students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250.

Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £22,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages. 

EU students joining undergraduate courses in September 2018 will be charged home tuition fees for the duration of their course.

Tuition fees for international (non-EU) students will be £22,000 per annum and will be fixed for the duration of the course.

You will receive a significant fee discount* if your course includes an exchange or work placement year. UK students from household incomes of up to £35,000 are eligible to receive a cash bursary for this additional year, as follows:
