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.

Entry to many Buckingham programmes is possible in January and September.
