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.

Tuition fees can be paid in full before or upon arrival. For further information please see:
