Notes on the illustration

1 This illustration is based on a home student starting an undergraduate 8-term degree in September 2017 (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.
3 This table is for comparison only. It is likely that tuition fees will rise in line with inflation.

#The University reserves the right to increase course fees annually in line with inflation linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI) to take account of the University’s increased costs of delivering educational services. If the University intends to increase your course fees it will notify you via email of this as soon as reasonably practicable.

Buckingham students can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the Student Loan Company to the value of £6,165 per annum. They can also apply for the Maintenance Loan of up to £8,430 per annum in the same way as students at other universities.
