Fees for entry in 2022 have not yet been set. For entry in 2021 the tuition fees were £9,250 per annum for home students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2022 entry.
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).
