Our course fees enable us to maintain the quality of a Manchester degree, invest in your wider student experience and offer a range of bursaries and discounts for students from less well-off backgrounds.

2018 entry

The tuition fee for full-time UK/EU undergraduate students is £9,250 for the academic year 2018/19. Future inflationary increases based on RPIX* may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. We will provide further information about such increases when this becomes available.

Eligible students will be able to borrow the full cost of tuition from the government in the form of a tuition fee loan. No UK/EU student will have to pay tuition fees up front. The tuition fee loan is not means-tested and is available to all eligible students.

Government maintenance loans are also available to UK students, although figures for the 2018/19 academic year have not been confirmed by the UK government. Once these figures have been announced, student finance information will be updated on these pages.

*RPIX is a measure of inflation in the UK, equivalent to all items in the Retail Price Index (RPI), excluding mortgage interest payments.

EU students

EU students joining undergraduate courses in September 2018 will be charged the same fee as home students for the duration of their course. We hope that EU students are reassured by this commitment, but should you require any further assistance please contact us with your query.

Government maintenance support

Government maintenance support is available to UK students. Figures for the maintenance loan for 2018 entry have not yet been confirmed. The information provided here is based on circumstances for English-domiciled students and refers to the principles of the 2017 system, which we do not expect to change.  You can find student finance contact details for students domiciled elsewhere by looking at the student finance section of the UK government services and information website Gov.UK.

Maintenance loan

Government support for living costs is available to UK students in the form of the maintenance loan. The amount of support that students receive depends on an assessment of their level of household income by Student Finance England.

All eligible UK students can access repayable living support from the government. The amount of loan will vary depending on whether a student lives away from home, lives at home with their parents or studies at a university in London.
