Tuition fees

Tuition fees

Our course fees enable us to maintain the quality of a Manchester degree, invest in your wider student experience and offer a range of bursaries and discounts for students from less well-off backgrounds.

The tuition fee for full-time UK/EU undergraduate students is £9,250 for the academic year 2019/20. Future inflationary increases based on RPIX* may be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. We will provide further information about such increases when this becomes available.

The UK government recently confirmed that EU nationals starting undergraduate courses in September 2019 will be charged the same fee as UK students for the duration of their course, irrespective of the timing of the UK's departure from the EU. EU nationals will also remain eligible for undergraduate financial support from Student Finance England for the duration of their course in the form of tuition fee, subject to current eligibility rules.

Eligible students will be able to borrow the full cost of tuition from the government in the form of a tuition fee loan. No UK or EU student will have to pay tuition fees up front. The tuition fee loan is not means-tested and is available to all eligible students.

*RPIX is a measure of inflation in the UK, equivalent to all items in the Retail Price Index (RPI), excluding mortgage interest payments.

EU postgraduate students

Funding support for EU students applying for university places in the 2018/19 academic year has been confirmed by the UK government. The government has also confirmed this support for EU students applying for university places in the 2019/20 academic year.

If you are a student from another EU country, you will continue to remain eligible for master’s, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in the 2019/20 academic year and will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.

EU nationals will also remain eligible to apply for Research Council PhD studentships at UK institutions for 2018/19 and 2019/20 to help cover costs for the duration of their study.
