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.

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.
