Full time postgraduate tuition fees

We charge an annual fee for all postgraduate taught courses. 

The fees listed below are given by faculty and department and vary depending on whether you are considered to be an UK/EU or international student.

The fees listed below are for the academic years 2017/18 and 2018/19. Part-time tuition fees are approximately half the full-time fee.
