Undergraduate and foundation students

Finance for Undergraduate and Foundation students

What you'll have to pay as an undergraduate student and when you'll need to pay it.

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.

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