Fees and Funding

You’ll need to pay an annual tuition fee for your postgraduate taught course. The fee you will pay depends on the course you are studying, if it’s full-time or part-time and whether you are a home or international student.  

You can find the fee for each course in the ‘Fees and Funding’ section of the course detail pages. Fees quoted are normally for one year of study and are subject to increases in subsequent years. If you’ve been made an offer by Durham the fee will also be in your offer letter, together with your fee status.

Fee status assessment and additional living costs

We carry out fee status assessments when you apply. If you think you have been assessed incorrectly then you will need to contact us through the Applicant Portal.  

There are also additional costs which are not covered by your tuition fees. These are for things like books, printing and gown hire at congregation. There may also be additional charges involved in your course, for example field study visits. The courses database will tell you more about these costs. 

You’ll also need to budget for living expenses. How much you’ll need depends on your own personal circumstances, but you’ll need to cover accommodation costs, food and other household expenses, utilities, clothing, travel, mobile phone and leisure. Our guide to living costs may help you work out how much you might need to allocate in your budget for these kinds of expenses.
