About Durham University

Information for current and prospective applicants

Now that Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty is being triggered, giving Britain the right to leave the European Union, the University would like to reassure current and prospective students about the fees regime that will apply to them during their planned programme of studies. European Union students entering in 2017 will pay the same tuition fee as UK students for the duration of their course.

For EU students commencing their studies at Durham University in 2017 this will be an undergraduate tuition fee of £9,250, subject to any modest inflationary increase in subsequent years.

Postgraduate Home/EU tuition fees

Postgraduate Home/EU tuition fees vary by programme, mode of study (full-time or part-time) and by level of study (taught or research). Further detail can be found at In each case the relevant Home/EU fee will apply for European Union students entering in 2017.

Please note, to qualify, EU nationals must still meet the residency requirements for fee status as outlined in the fee regulations for Higher Education in England as described on
