Tuition Fees and Living Expenses

Tuition fees for postgraduate degrees can be found on the postgraduate website

Students at Newcastle can generally expect a lower cost of living than in many other parts of the UK. Rent for private accommodation is relatively cheap and travelling around the city is inexpensive. As a guide, we estimate that you will need between £8,500 to £9,500 a year to cover your living costs (not tuition fees).
