Tuition fees for 2012 entry
Durham has announced plans to charge a headline fee of £9,000 per year to undergraduates from 2012. The decision was reached following detailed evaluation of both the costs and the value of a Durham education which offers both research-led education, and personal and social development through a close-knit community of departments and colleges.
With students from over 130 countries and world-leading expertise across traditional disciplines from humanities to science, Durham University is committed to further enriching the diversity of its undergraduate community through a programme of scholarships and bursaries to be announced in the summer of 2011. This programme will ensure that Durham continues to recruit the students with the greatest merit and potential, regardless of background, to benefit from Durham's distinctive degrees.
The new tuition fees will only apply to new home/EU undergraduate students registering in 2012, and will not apply to continuing students, students progressing from the foundation programme to year one of their degree, or students transferring from another institution at the end of their first year to enter Durham University in 2012. Students who withdraw during their first year of study in academic year 2011/12 and reapply to Durham University for 2012 entry, or who wish to change their mode of study (full-time or part-time) when they transfer, will be classed a new entrant and liable for the new 2012 fee.
