International Tuition Fees

Disclaimer: The UK Government has confirmed that European Union students applying for university places in the 2019 to 2020 academic year will remain eligible for financial support, and have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU in 2019.

EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students. EU nationals will also remain eligible to apply for Research Council PhD studentships at the University for 2018 to 2019 to help cover costs for the duration of their study.

If you are a student from the European Union please see our separate guidance on undergraduate and postgraduate tuition fees.

The tuition fees for non-EU, full-time students at the University of Northampton depend on the type of course and mode of study.

You may be required to complete an English Language course or Foundation programme before being able to enrol on to an undergraduate or postgraduate degree programme.

Tuition fees are charged for each year of the course and will be subject to increases in subsequent academic years. Please refer to the course page for any additional costs that could form part of the course.

Amounts given are in pounds sterling and refer to tuition fees only.
