What you have to pay in fees depends on whether you are classified as Home (including EU based) or Overseas.


Normally, if you have lived in the UK for three years prior to the start of your course and there are no restrictions on the period you may remain in the country, you will be charged tuition fees at the Home rate. Home students do not pay a separate College fee. In 2017-18, it is intended that the tuition fee for UK/EU students studying for their first undergraduate degree will be £9,250 for all courses. This is subject to government approval. For UK students, it is anticipated that tuition fees will then increase for continuing students by an inflationary rate in subsequent years; however this is also subject to government approval. EU students admitted in 2017-18 will throughout their course pay the same fees as UK students. Further advice will be published in due course.

No full-time undergraduate Home (EU) student has to pay fees before they start university or whilst they are studying. Instead, fees are repaid after graduation. Further information is available from Student Finance.
