Undergraduate tuition fees and scholarships

If you've got the ability, we believe that finance shouldn't be a barrier to you studying with us. That’s why we've invested in one of the most generous financial support packages in the UK.

Undergraduate tuition fees

Tuition fees for home students commencing their studies in September 2022 are being finalised and we will update the website shortly.

Tuition fees for international students commencing their studies in September 2022 will be £26,000 per annum and will be fixed for the duration of the course.

You will receive a significant fee discount if your course includes a work placement or study abroad. Home students currently pay £1,850 for a full year work placement and £1,350 for a full year studying abroad (or full year Erasmus work placement). International students will pay 20% of the standard international fee for their work placement or study abroad year. 

UK students from household incomes of up to £35,000 are also eligible to receive a cash award for this additional year, as follows:
