Tuition Fees

Newcastle University Postgraduate Tuition Fees

Each course profile page includes the expected tuition fees for your course. Some courses involve intensive laboratory, clinical or fieldwork so may have higher fees.

International students (from outside of the UK/EU) will be charged fees at the international rate. Part-time fees for international students normally do not apply as your student visa requires you to study full time.

Visit the course profiles to find out about tuition fees and costs.

European Union Referendum

A referendum to determine whether the UK remains in the European Union was held on Thursday 23 June 2016 and the outcome was that the UK should leave the European Union. Whilst this decision will have many consequences, there will be no major changes taking place immediately, as there will be a gradual, managed exit process.

Newcastle University has guaranteed that EU students entering our University in 2017 will pay the UK (Home) rate of fee for the full duration of their programme of study. We will update this page to confirm the fee level for EU students entering the University in 2018 as soon as possible. This will be subject to decisions made by the UK Government as part of the Brexit negotiations.

Assessing you fees status

You may be unsure if you have a UK/EU or non-EU international fee status

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) provides guidance on who is eligible for UK/EU fees.

We will assess your fee status using the information in your postgraduate application. In some cases we may ask you to complete a fees assessment questionnaire and send us extra documents.

Confirmation of our assessment of your fees status will be in your offer letter.

Paying fees

Tuition fees are usually payable for each year of your study.

International students and research students will need to pay half of their annual tuition fees in order to register at the University in September. The second half of your fees will be due in the following January.

Further fee payment information for international and research students can be found on our pre-arrival website.

Tuition fee instalment scheme 

UK/EU students registering for an eligible taught postgraduate course with a September start date can pay for their annual tuition fees in six instalments. Read more about our tuition fee instalment scheme.
