Tuition fees

We set tuition fees for our degree programmes and English language courses on an annual basis. Tuition fees are usually payable for each year of your study and they are different depending on which degree you choose to study.

To find out how much you will have to pay, visit our finance information for specific degrees using our A-Z list of degrees.

You will have to pay 50 per cent of your annual tuition fees in September. The remaining 50 per cent will need to paid in the following January.

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

You can check the individual undergraduate course pages for details of tuition fees.

Please be aware that different fee levels apply on some of our courses.
