Tuition Fees & Costs

Tuition Fees and Costs

We will be charging a tuition fee of £9,000 per year for new undergraduates, from the UK and EU, who start university in 2016 and 2017*.

We provide tuition fee costs for international students (from outside the EU) in the individual degree pages.

If you're a current student, please visit our Student Wellbeing website for finance information.

Key tuition fee facts

Key information about tuition fees:

  • you will not have to pay any tuition fees up-front or while you are studying
  • tuition fee loans are available for eligible students from the UK and EU
  • you only start to repay the loan after you have graduated and are earning over £21,000
  • different fee levels apply on some of our courses. You can find specific fees information by degree using our A-Z list of degrees

Check the financial implications of studying for a second degree if you plan to study for a qualification that is at an equivalent level to, or a lower level than one you have already started.

Fee discounts

A 2% early payment discount is available on any fees you pay yourself, if you pay in full on or before the 26 November.

An alumni discount of 20% off fee costs is available if you've already completed a degree at Newcastle, and are self-financing a second undergraduate degree with us.

Additional course costs

We aim to minimise additional costs to students but some of our degrees involve costs that tuition fees do not cover. To make sure that you budget accurately for university life, check if your degree requires any additional course costs.

Living costs

You'll need to allow around £8,500 a year for living costs. This figure is for guidance only. It will depend on your own personal spending patterns and how you manage your money.

Non-payment of fees

The University will withhold your degree certificate if you have not paid your tuition fees. We explain this policy in the University General Regulations (PDF: 69KB).

Access Agreement

To charge tuition fees of more than £6,000 per year, universities have negotiated an access agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA). The Newcastle University Access Agreement 2016 Entry (PDF: 1.09MB) sets out our commitment to widening participation and fair access.
