Postgraduate students

How you can finance your postgraduate study and when you'll need to pay your fees.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees are chargeable for the academic period required by the programme, with annual amounts charged for each academic year of the programme unless otherwise stated. It is to be expected that tuition fees will rise by a modest amount, for the duration of study. This is to take into account inflationary pressures.

Fees for postgraduate diplomas

Fees for postgraduate certificates

Fees for postgraduate taught degrees

Fees for postgraduate research degrees

Tuition fees may vary depending on the programme of study and attendance. Information regarding tuition fee amounts is also displayed during online registration
