Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £4,260
    International students (per annum): £18,000
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £2,130

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
