Fees and funding

Studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in the UK can be great value for money for students coming from America. Prices are competitive compared to equivalent institutions at home and, as courses are more focused and intensive, students benefit from shorter periods of study than in the US or other English-speaking countries.

Fees at The University of Manchester cover the cost of study and include charges for registration, tuition, supervision, examinations and graduation. As well as this, full-time students are entitled to basic healthcare from the National Health Service (NHS), upon payment of a compulsory annual levy. 

Federal loans

The University of Manchester is recognised by the US Government for FAFSA federal student aid.

Many of our students are self-financing and bring their federal and private loans to pay for their education.

Our North American Loans team offers a dedicated service for US students who wish to use their federal and private loans to pay for their education. They can help to work out, step by step, how much funding students are entitled to and how to complete loan applications.

Cost of living

Manchester's affordable cost of living makes it an ideal choice for students who want to enjoy a major city on a budget. See our breakdown of spending for one academic year to help plan your finances.
