Tuition fees for international students

What does it cost and how do I pay for it?

International students

Our standard tuition fee is £17,400 per year for our two-year courses or £34,800 in total for your full honours degree. This compares to most other universities who will be charging around £15,000 per year for three years or a total of £45,000. You also save a whole year of accommodation and living costs when you complete your degree in two years instead of three.
