Tuition fees

Fee status

Like other universities in the United Kingdom, tuition fee rates differ for students whose fee status is 'home', 'overseas' or another term.

Work out your fee status

Part of working out how much you will pay for a programme depends on knowing what your fee status is.

Confirming your fee status after you apply

Your fee status is not confirmed until after you apply for admission. Once you start studying, your fee status cannot be updated if your circumstances change.
