Our undergraduate tuition fees for UK students for 2018-19 will be £9,250.
To charge tuition fees of more than £6,000 per year, Newcastle University has negotiated an access agreement with the Office for Fair Access (OFFA), which sets out our commitment to widening participation and fair access.
The maximum fee that we are permitted to charge for UK students is set by the UK government. Tuition fees may increase in each subsequent academic year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases and in line with inflation.
Please note that some of our degrees involve additional costs which are not covered by your tuition fee.
EU studentsEU students
Our undergraduate tuition fees for EU students for 2018-19 will be £9,250.
As a general principle, you should expect the tuition fee to increase in each subsequent academic year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases and in line with inflation.
You may be eligible to apply for a tuition fee loan and if you are accepted, you will not have to pay any tuition fees up-front or while you are studying.
If a sponsor is paying your fees you will need to provide evidence.
This should be:
- an official letter on headed note paper
- addressed to the University
- include full details of the sponsorship

EU students who are currently at UK universities and those entering in 2017 and 2018 will receive student loan support from the UK Government for the duration of their course.
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.

Key tuition fee facts
Key information about tuition fees for UK and EU students:
- UK and EU students can study without paying a penny upfront by taking out a tuition fee loan
- 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 £25,000
- different fee levels apply on some of our courses. You can find specific fees information by degree using our A-Z list of degrees
- If you decide not to take out a tuition fee loan and choose to pay us direct for your studies there are two payment options. Throughout each year of study you can pay the annual fees in full or you can pay in three instalments
Please check the financial implications if you have previously studied a higher education course.
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.
Early Payment Discount
UK/EU students can receive a 2% discount on their annual tuition fee if they pay before the 26 November 2018.
International students will need to pay their annual fees in full during registration week to take advantage of the 2% full payment discount.
Students who have deferred entry, will be subject to the cost of tuition fees (and eligible for the scholarship schemes) for the year in which they start university.
Did you enter university before 2012 and take a leave of absence, or other break, which delayed your studies until after 2012? If so, find out how the fees and funding changes will impact you on our Tuition Fees Exceptions page.
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.
UK and EU students will need to allow around £9,000-£10,000 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.
Living costs for our international students can be found on our international student finance page.
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: 322KB).
