International Tuition Fees
On 28 May 2019 the UK Government announced that European Union students applying for university places in the 2020-21 academic year will remain eligible for financial support, and have access to undergraduate and postgraduate student loans, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.
EU students are eligible for home fee status, which means they are charged the same tuition fees as UK students.
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.
If you receive an offer to study with us, it is part of the terms and conditions that you will need to pay a deposit of £5,000 (GBP) tuition for your first year of study when you have accepted your offer. A £5,000 (GBP) deposit will be required for each year of study before enrolment. This will be deducted from the total tuition fee due each year. The remaining balance will be due in 2 further instalments by 15th January & 15th April for September starters and 15th May & 15th August for January starters.
Sometimes plans don’t work out and you may need to withdraw from your course. Please refer to our Withdrawal Refund Policy on the Student Hub for details. Please note: the Student Hub requires student log in to access.
