Each course has a fee which a student must pay in order to enrol on a course. In this section you will find all the relevant details regarding fees.
It is the responsibility of every student to pay tuition fees and we will ask you to show proof of your tuition fee payment at enrolment.
- If you are sponsored, or receive a student loan, your fees will be paid directly by your sponsorship organisation or the Student Loans Company. You will need to show evidence of your loan or sponsorship on enrolment. Doing this quickly should mean that there is no delay to your enrolment and student loan being paid.
- If you are paying your tuition fees yourself then you are required to do this before you can enrol. For details of methods and terms of payment.
You must have completed online preregistration before you attend your enrolment session. During your preregistration we will ask you to formally confirm that you accept responsibility for the tuition fees due for that academic year.
If you need further information regarding funding, please see the funding and money advice page.
By re-enrolling online, you are also confirming that you accept responsibility for the tuition fees due for that academic year. There are a number of ways to ensure your fees are paid:
- If all your fees are paid via the Student Loans Company you do NOT have to show your Assessment Letter/Payment Schedule to University, as confirmation of your re-enrolment will be sent to the Student Loans Company directly after you have re-enrolled.
- If you are paying all of the tuition fees yourself these must either be paid in full or paid via an approved instalment plan agreed with accounts receivable in the finance department.
- If your tuition fees are being paid partly by you and partly by the Student Loans Company, you must pay the remainder of the fees payment online through ePayments or at the University's finance office.
Re-enrolment is conditional upon you having paid all fees from the previous year.
Overseas students usually have to pay a deposit equal to 50% of the tuition fees for the first year. This must be paid before starting the course, however students who need to apply for a Tier 4 visa will be required to pay this deposit before a CAS can be assigned. Those who win full scholarships do not pay a deposit.
University bursary for Extended Degree students who began their course in 2018/19
We offer a bursary package for our UK and EU extended degree students who started with us in 2018/19 academic year. You'll be able to put this towards a laptop, childcare, books or accomodation. A little bit of help gets you one step closer to your chosen career.
Extended degree bursaries
If you joined us in 2018/19 on an extended degree course, you may be eligible for the following bursary awards:
- a £1,000 bursary when you join us in Year 0, if you are receiving the full Maintenance loan.
- a £1,000 progression bursary if you successfully progress onto year 1 (in 2019/20).
Your continued eligibility for both of the above awards is dependent on an attendance rate of 75%. The bursary will be paid in 3 equal instalments throughout the course of the academic year.
If you start your course in September you need to meet all your eligibility criteria by 13th December 2019. If you start your course in January you need to meet all your eligibility criteria by 15th April 2020.
If you decide to study part-time, your bursaries and fees will be based on a pro-rata calculation.
The University bursary is administered by the Student Loans Company on behalf of the University. If you have queries about the administration of the bursary please email our Student Fees and Funding Office.
Full-time home/EU undergraduate tuition fee changes
Following the release of the Higher Education Bill and the provisions of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the University, like most other universities, may revise the tuition fee for students commencing a new course from 1 September 2018. Students continuing studies into 2018-19 are not affected by this change in fee and their fee position remains as detailed below.
|Year of entry||Fee position|
|2013/14 & 2014/15||
These students entered the University on fees set below the national fees cap (£9,000) and will pay an inflation adjusted annual tuition fee in their later years of study.
|2015/16 & 2016/17||
These students entered the University on fees set at the national fees cap (£9,000) and will pay the same annual tuition fee in their later years of study.
|2017/18, 2018/19 & 2019/20||
Students entering the University from 1 September 2018 will pay a fee of £9,250 for their first year of study and this may be increased in subsequent years of study according to the rate of inflation or the limits applied under the annual Teaching Excellence Framework reviews. This does include students who already hold an offer of a place for commencement of study after 1 September 2018. This also includes students who hold an offer of a place for commencement of study before 1 September 2018 but who elect to defer their commencement of study until after 1 September 2018. Fees for returning students may change each year by an amount also set under the government’s regulation. EU student fees may be subject to change depending on the future of the UK’s membership of the European Union.
