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 2015. Tuition fees and costs for 2016 entry are not yet confirmed.

Tuition fee costs for international students from outside the EU are provided in the individual degree pages.

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

Key tuition fee facts

  • Tuition fee loans are available for eligible students from the UK and EU

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 are not covered by tuition fees. 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 and will depend on your own personal spending patterns and how you manage your money.

Non-payment of fees

The University will withhold degree certificates if tuition fees have not been paid. This policy is explained 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 2015 entry (PDF: 845KB) sets out our commitment to widening participation and fair access.
