Course fees

For course fees, please visit the relevant course page for information.

The prices quoted are in pounds sterling (GBP). Payment is also accepted at the current exchange rate in Euros or US dollars.

With distance learning degrees at the University of Hertfordshire we offer flexible payment options where you can either pay as you study, or pay the full amount in one go, depending on your situation.

There are three payment options:

  • Full payment before registration (i.e. full fee per level/course)
  • Payment per semester (i.e. full modular fee)
  • Tuition fee instalments (see full details in the Fees and Finance Policy document below)
