Cost of Attendance

Each academic year, the Student Financial Support Team establishes standard student budgets that use cost of attendance (COA) estimates for awarding financial aid funds.

You may borrow up to the cost of attendance and no more.

The full-time COA in 2018/19 entry is:

  • for undergraduate students (this is usually calculated for 9 months) - £10,500 plus tuition fees
  • for postgraduate students (this is usually calculated for 12 months) - £12,500 plus tuition fees

These amounts include accommodation, food, books and supplies, house-hold, personal, utilities, mobile phone, insurance, sports and leisure and local travel.

We will certify extra costs for items such as dependent care, max of 2 return flights to the US, compulsory fieldwork costs, immigration health surcharge and visa application fees.
