International tuition fees

Fees for full-time international students are displayed in the course database. Please check this for up to date fees. 

Fee status

You are classified as ‘Home/EU’ or ‘Overseas’ for fees purposes depending on your nationality and the country where you normally live – where you are ‘ordinarily resident’.

We will determine your fee status based on information you supply in your application. If we can’t determine your fee status automatically we will ask you for more information.

Paying your tuition fees

Tuition and accommodation fees are payable following your arrival at the University. An invoice will be issued to you indicating the date by which you must have paid these fees. Payments, in sterling, can be made direct debit, credit card, cheque or bankers draft or bank transfer. However, direct debit is the University's preferred method of payment.

Tuition fees can be paid in one lump sum, or in three instalments, divided into three equal payments. For information about the payment and division of your tuition fee payments, please contact the Finance department.
