Fees

Fees for entry in 2020 have not yet been set. For entry in 2019 the tuition fees were £9,250 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2020 entry.

Additional expenses

We work hard to ensure that our course can be completed without significant additional study costs over and above the tuition fee.

The two areas where additional costs can be incurred are travel to clinical placements and reading. In both of these situations, we seek to ensure that additional costs are kept as low as possible.

The University defines low cost as an annual cost that is no more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee.

Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).

Scholarships/sponsorships

We are pleased to offer a £2,000 per annum tuition fee bursary for international applicants to Pharmacy. This will be applied automatically should you register on the course. Unfortunately we are unable to provide a bursary for home/EU students; however, the University offers a scholarship/bursary package .
