You are classified as either a ‘UK/EU’ or ‘international’ student for the purpose of assessing tuition fees. International students will pay a higher fee than UK students as the fees for UK and EU students are subsidised by the UK government.
Fees quoted are based on full-time study and apply for each year of the course. If you are studying part time the fee is normally adjusted based on proportion of the course studied each year but this is not always the case so please check.
International fees are fixed at the point of entry and will not rise in subsequent years of the course. This means you are more easily plan your finances at the outset.
Fees for 2013/14
UK/EU – £3,950
International - £16,200
When to pay
Fees must be paid in full before you can register as a postgraduate student, unless you will be paying for yourself. If you are self-supporting you can pay fees in two instalments, the first payable at registration. If you are supported by your government, employer, or other sponsor, you should provide a letter from them addressed to the University, confirming that the fees will be paid directly. Sponsors cannot pay by instalments. For further information visit the University's website.
