Undergraduate and foundation fees – Bath Spa University

Tuition fees for undergraduate and foundation degrees

Our tuition fees vary according to the type of degree programme you study, your mode of study and where you study. Fees specific to each course are listed on the individual course pages, however this page will give you an overview of the types of costs for our range of undergraduate and foundation courses.

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.
