Your tuition fees will cover the cost of your postgraduate research programme at the University as well as 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.

Some programmes incur higher expenditure than others and it is therefore important that you check the exact rate of tuition fees for your chosen research programme.

You can find details of individual course fees in the relevant postgraduate programme profiles. Visit our Crucial Guide for fee amounts for submission-pending and joint-award payments.

Home or international (including EU) fees?

Tuition fees are set at different levels for home and international students

The information you submit on your application to study at the University will be used to determine your tuition fee status. In some cases we may require additional information from you. If this is the case, we’ll let you know in your acknowledgement email or letter, which we’ll send to you shortly after we receive your application. We may need you to fill in and return our Tuition Fee Assessment Form, along with relevant supporting information.

Please note that your fee assessment cannot be carried out before your study application is received.

Paying your fees

Students must be able to provide documentary evidence from a sponsor that these fees will be paid on receipt of an invoice or that they will be able to meet the cost themselves. A late payment charge will be incurred if your fees are not paid by the due date.

If you have a question concerning your fees, please email our Student Services Centre at ssc@manchester.ac.uk.
