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.
