UK/EU Undergraduate Tuition Fees

UK/European Union Undergraduate Tuition Fees


Tuition Fees


The tuition fee for UK and EU students in 2016/17 is £9,000 per year.


The tuition fee for UK and EU undergraduate students in 2017/18 is £9,250 per year.

Proposed changes to tuition fees at universities in England which meet a set quality standard were approved by the Government, and came into effect on 3 March 2017. As Royal Holloway has already met the set quality standard, measured by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), this means that our tuition fees for UK and EU undergraduates will now increase to £9,250 for the academic year 2017/18.

If Royal Holloway continues to meet the quality standard as set out in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the tuition fee may then increase each year by a maximum amount that is controlled by the Government.

Important: if you began your programme on or before September 2015, you will not be affected by these changes.  We have previously announced that your fees will remain at £9,000 a year for the duration of your course.

Fees for students from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man are the same as those for students from the UK and European Union (please see above).

Funding for Islands students is managed by their respective governments and will vary from that available to UK students. Further information on funding for Islands students can be found at:

Repeat and Exam Resit Fees

Repeat Fees

Undergraduate students repeating a year as full time or part time are charged a fee on a pro-rata basis, depending on the number of course units they are taking. The fee per 15 credits (one half course unit) is set as approximately one eighth of the full time fee, subject to the total not exceeding the published standard fee as applicable. This same rule applies to joint (major/minor) degree programmes.

Student Finance and repeat fees

Terms and conditions are applied by Student Finance England (SFE) to periods of repeat study and may not offer funding for students who have undertaken previous study at a different university or on a different course. It is important that students affected contact SFE to establish their eligibility before they complete their enrolment with the university. The maximum length of tuition loan funding equals the length of course + 1 year. Students who are ineligible for funding will be required to pay the full tuition fee set.

Exam Resit Fees

Repeating students in attendance for some courses on a full or part time basis are not charged an exam resit fee for any other courses they intend to resit.

Exam resit fees are payable by students not in attendance who have to resit or defer the assessment of some element of a course.
