There are two rates of fee: one is for students who are ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom or the EEA and who meet the necessary criteria, and one is for students who are ordinarily resident in other overseas countries and/or do not meet the necessary immigration criteria. All applications will be fee assessed and you will be contacted if any further information is required to establish your fee status.
Living costs vary depending on individual circumstances and lifestyle. We would recommend that a single student should budget around £7200 for one academic year to cover costs including rent, utilities, food, clothes, books, travel, and personal expenses for socialising and entertainment.
