Tuition fees cover the cost of your study and include charges for registration, tuition, supervision, examinations and graduation.

Payment of fees will also entitle you to membership of the library, the Students' Union and the Athletic Union.

To provide you with certainty in your financial planning we have fixed tuition fees for new international students for the duration of their course (please note that this does not apply to clinical undergraduate courses in Medicine and Dentistry, or to progression from our foundation year to a bachelor's degree course).

Any offer of a place at the University is made on the understanding that you have sufficient funds to pay for your tuition fees and your living expenses for the entire duration of your period of study.
