Undergraduate & Foundation Home Fees

Home student status typically applies to persons ordinarily resident in the UK, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, and to nationals of the EU and Overseas Territories. Nationals of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland may often qualify for Home status or other financial support. Please contact the Admissions Assistant for your proposed degree programme. You may also find it useful to look at our Accommodation fees to help you to budget for your living expenses during your studies.

1 This illustration is based on a home student starting an undergraduate 8-term degree in September 2016 (many September start courses at Buckingham last for 9-terms. There is no additional tuition fee but there will be an extra term of living costs for which a pro-rata loan is available from the Student Loan Company).
2 This is an estimate of living costs – the major element is the cost of accommodation.

Buckingham students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan to the value of £6,000 per annum^. They can also apply for the Maintenance Loan of up to £5,555 per annum in the same way as students at other universities. The gap between Buckingham’s tuition fees and the annual repayable tuition fee loan from the Student Loan Company can be bridged with a personal loan from Santander.
