Tuition Fees - How Much Are They?

This page provides information about fees for postgraduate research degrees. For more information about fees for postgraduate taught degrees, please check our course records.

Tuition fees are grouped according to the subject area shown in the table below. 

General Principles 

  1. Fees are per annum unless otherwise stated. All figures are GBP (£) unless otherwise stated. 
  2. Fees are set by year of entry, and unless noted specifically otherwise, remain the same for the duration of a course. 
  3. EU students starting in 2020/21 will pay the home fee for the duration of their course. 
  4. EU students starting in 2021/22 will pay the overseas fee for the duration of their course. 

Standard Fee Bands 

Until 2017/18, all programmes were grouped by Department into fee bands. From 2018/19, at Postgraduate Taught level, and from 2019/20 at Undergraduate level, unregulated fees are set by programme and not banded.
