Fees, Finance & Funding
Tuition Fees are payable in full prior to the start of the course or programme. If you are a Tier 4 student then the fees will need to be paid prior to the issuing of your CAS.
Fees for international students beginning their studies in 2021/22 are £15,500 (approx. 135,000 yuan) per year to study an undergraduate degree and from £15,500 (approx. 135,000 yuan) per year to study a postgraduate degree.
Our International Fees* are very competitive and are less costly than many of our competitors – yet our facilities are world-leading. We pride ourselves in being committed to offering students accessible and affordable quality programmes. Please note, fees are correct at the time of publication and may be subject to change.
*Excluding costs for international students who need a pre-sessional English course and ongoing in-year English language support.

EU students who began their studies in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years will continue to have ‘home fee status’, so they will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students. They will also be eligible for the same student loan and grants for the duration of their course.
From August 2021 EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for home fee status undergraduate, postgraduate, and advanced learner financial support from Student Finance England for courses starting in the academic year 2021/22.
