Fees and cost of living

No tuition fees are payable to The University of Manchester for students studying with us on exchange.*

Your home university will be able to advise you as to their requirements for payment of your usual tuition fees.

Exchange Extra

If you study at an exchange partner university, but are not eligible to join us as an exchange student (for example, because there are insufficient places in a particular year, or because your discipline area is not covered by the exchange agreement), you can apply to join us as a study abroad fee-paying student, and will receive a 10% Exchange Extra discount off the regular study abroad tuition fee.

Cost of living

When planning your finances, it is important to think about the money you will spend on everyday items, as well as on materials for your studies.

*Exchange students do not pay the standard tuition fee directly to The University of Manchester for their study. However, please note that a small number of course units have consumable fees attached to them, which exchange students must pay if they select these units. Examples may include some Music course units (which may carry fees for music lessons) and Geography course units (which may have field-trip costs).
