Fees and funding

Getting to grips with finances is a key part of your university preparations.

Tuition fees change every year and some courses have additional costs for things such as trips or special equipment. Fees vary for UK, EU and international students and depend on the type of course you're doing  - Foundation, Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Research, part-time, online.

Depending on your course, you may need to buy specialist equipment such as art supplies or laboratory overalls, or contribute to a field trip in addition to the tuition fees listed below.

All of this information is available on our individual course pages, plus details of available scholarships designed to reward excellence or help support students who are struggling.

It's important to know as much as you can about funding and paying for your studies and your university experience and we'll guide you through it all.

Check your fees if you are an international student as they will differ.

Research fees

Research studentships

A research degree studentship gives you the opportunity of full-time research training leading to the award of a research degree at doctoral level. You would undertake your full-time study on an agreed research programme. A monthly bursary is awarded during the studentship to cover your living and daily travel expenses. The bursary is not subject to tax.

Contact our Research Degrees Team if you have any queries about research studentships.
