Fees

Fees for entry in 2023 have not yet been set. For entry in 2022 the tuition fees were £3,075 per annum for home students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2023 entry.

As a non degree-level course, this course is not on the University's list of validated courses for the purposes of Student Finance England. Students are therefore not able to secure funding from Student Finance England for their studies on this course.

Additional expenses

There are no compulsory books to buy. All compulsory texts will be made available to you as part of the course at no extra cost. There is a suggested reading list which will be made available to you when you start the course. We do not expect you to read everything on this list, but you will benefit from reading as many of the suggested texts as you are able.

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).
