These fees relate to ‘home’ and EU students commencing the first year of their undergraduate course in 2016/17.

The full time and undergraduate fees for 2016/17 are:

Award
Tuition fee per year

BA and BSc £9,000
HND £8,500
Foundation degree £8,500
Foundation year (as part of a 4 year programme) £6,200
PGCE (full time) £9,000

Tuition fees are payable for each year of the course. The fees are subject to change during the continuing academic years of the course due to annual inflationary increases.

How and when course fees are paid

If you have a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England you don’t have to pay your fees up front. Most home and EU students will be able to apply for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance England (SFE) or from your regional funding body in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland (eligibility criteria apply). EU students who meet the eligibility criteria should be able to take out a tuition fee loan from the Student Finance European Team.

You don’t start paying back your student loans until you leave University and you are earning more than £21,000 per year.

Paying your own fees

If you don’t want to borrow your tuition fees from the UK Government you can pay your fees directly to the University without taking out a loan. If you choose to pay in this way the fees will have to be paid while you are studying and payment cannot be deferred in the same way as a tuition fee loan. There are two payment options available:

Option 1: payment in full by 1 September 2016

Annual fee Less 2.5% discount Amount to pay
£9,000 £225 £8,775
£8,500 £212.50 £8,287.50
£6,200 £155.00 £6,045

Option 2: payment in two equal instalments

Annual fee Instalment payment Due for payment
£9,000 Two instalments of £4,500

1st payment by 1 September 2016

2nd payment by 20 January 2017

£8,500 Two instalments of £4250

£6,200

 

Two instalments of £3,100

1st payment by 1 September 2016

2nd payment by 20 January 2017

It is vitally important to make sure you have sufficient funding to pay your fees before you commence your course. If you cannot afford to make payment as outlined above, it is advisable for you to consider taking out a loan, if you are eligible to do so.

Part time tuition fees

New students who commence a part time undergraduate course in 2016/17  may be eligible to apply to Student Finance England for a loan to pay their fees. Part time students from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland may be eligible to apply to their regional funding body for support to cover the cost of their tuition fees (eligibility criteria apply).

For more information on the eligibility criteria for part time tuition fee loans please visit the Student Finance page for undergraduate courses and the Student Loans Company page for  postgraduate level courses.  Professional courses are not eligible for student support from Student Finance England.
