Tuition fees and costs
Annual tuition fees are listed on the Postgraduate Study Programme Fees pages related to your desired pathway, exit level and duration of study.
- MSc Digital Education (Online Learning) (ICL) - 2-6 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
- PgDip Digital Education (Online Learning) (ICL) 1-4 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
- PgCert Digital Education (Online Learning) (ICL) 1-2 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
If you register to study on a 'part-time intermittent study' basis you will pay the academic tuition fees on a course-by-course basis, rather than paying for the entire programme at the outset. As fees change each year, your total cost will depend on the length of time taken to complete your programme.
The cost for courses on this programme is the same for all students, whether based in the UK, the European Union, or elsewhere. N.B. If taking the programme on an intermittent basis, courses from outside the School may have different fees.
For reference, the Masters programme is equivalent to 180 credits: ‘An Introduction to Digital Environments for Learning’ (40 credits), four 20-credit courses (including Research Methods), and the Dissertation (60 credits).
Scholarships and funding
Scholarship opportunities are subject to change each year. Therefore, students are encouraged to seek out funding opportunities from the University and external funding bodies.
