Tuition fees for undergraduate students 2015-16

The tuition fees that Royal Holloway charges will vary depending on whether you are classified as a UK/EU, international or Islands student. These charges are set out below:

Tuition fees for students from the UK and European Union

The tuition fee for UK and EU students in 2015-16 will be £9,000.

There is a different tuition fee for a year spent abroad or working in industry.

 

Tuition fees for international students outside the European Union

Tuition fees listed are for students starting their degree programme in the 2015-16 academic year. For joint or major/minor courses (for example BSc Economics and Mathematics or Physics with Psychology ) the fee charged will be for the major subject, i.e. Economics or Physics.

The fees advertised on this page are for study in one academic year. As fees for years two and three of an undergraduate programme are not set in advance, students should be aware there may be increases in the fees for subsequent years, in line with the rate of inflation. Royal Holloway's policy,however, is that any increases in fees will not exceed five per cent for continuing students.

How to pay the tuition fee

You can pay your fee to Royal Holloway in a number of ways including student loans and paying them yourself. You can find out more about paying your fees here|.

If you're able to pay your own tuition fees in one amount you may benefit from our early payment discount.|

Will I pay the UK/EU or international fee?

The UK government sets guidelines on who is eligible to pay the UK/EU rate of fees. Guidance| is produced by the UK Council for International Student Advice (UKCISA) on which students should qualify for the lower fee. 

Please note that holding a UK or EU passport does not automatically qualify you for the UK/EU rate of fees. You will also need to meet residency requirements.

When you apply to Royal Holloway a provisional decision is made on your fee status, based on the information you provide on your application form.  This status will be communicated to you if you are made an offer on your chosen course. You can check this using the Campus Connect status checker|.

If you disagree with the College's assessment, you should complete a fee assessment questionnaire| and submit it to the Admissions Office together with supporting documentation. 

A trained member of Admissions staff will then re-assess your fee status based on the information on the questionnaire.

A copy of the fee assessment form, and further information on the fee assessment procedure can be found in Admissions Policies and Procedures.|

Please note that once you have enrolled , your fee status cannot be changed for the duration of your course. Any queries must be sorted out before you enrol.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am being charged overseas fees but think I should be paying UK/EU fees

Q. I am being charged overseas fees but I think I should be paying the fees for UK/EU students. How can I get the fees changed?

A. Before you enrol, you must complete a Fee Status Questionnaire so that the university can assess your fee status. If you are assessed as being eligible to pay 'home fees', then your record will be amended to reflect the change to the fees. Do not enrol until your fee status has been sorted out.

I disagree with the assessment of my Fee Status Questionnaire

Q. I have completed a Fee Status Questionnaire and told that I must pay overseas fees. I don't agree with this assessment. What should I do?

A. If you have new information  that was not supplied when you completed the Fee Status Questionnaire, you should give this to staff at Enrolment. Your case will then be reviewed. Do not enrol until this review has taken place.

If you do not have new information,you should contact the UKCISA Student Advice Line on 020 7107 9922 (open 13:00 to 16:00 Monday to Friday) or visit their website|. Do not enrol on your course unless you are prepared to pay overseas fees for the duration of your course. You may wish to defer entry until next year if a resolution cannot be found quickly.

I will be getting Indefinite Leave to Remain - can I change my fees status

Q. I have been assessed as an overseas fee-paying student, but I will be getting indefinite leave to remain (ILR) soon and then I qualify for 'home'fees status. How can I get my fees changed after registration?

A. Once you have enrolled, your fee status can't be changed for the duration of the course. If you pay overseas fees when you start your course, you will not qualify to pay ' home ' fees in any subsequent years of the course - other than the exceptions advised in the following question. You might want to consider deferring entry until next year if you don't want to pay overseas fees and believe you will get ILR in the next 11 months.

Under what circumstances can I change my fee status

Q. I am paying overseas fees now but under what circumstances can my fees be changed to 'home'?

A. Normally a fee status can't change once you've enrolled on a course. The exceptions are where you:

  • acquire the right of permanent residence in the UK - applicable only to EU nationals and their family members
  • become a family member of an EU national (you must also meet the residency conditions)
  • become the relevant family member of an EEA or Swiss migrant worker e.g. through marriage  ( you must also meet the residency conditions)
  • become the child of a Swiss or Turkish worker (and meet all other conditions)
  • are recognised as a refugee part way through your course
  • are not recognised as a refugee but are allowed to remain in the UK

I am a British Citizen why have I been told I must pay overseas fees

Q. I am a British Citizen but have been told that I must pay overseas fees. Why?

A. In order to be considered as a 'home' fee-paying student, you need to fit into certain categories. Full details of these categories can be found at the UKICISA website|

Please note: Having a British passport does not make you automatically a 'home' fee payer. You must also have been resident in the UK for the 3 years prior to the first day of the academic year of the course (normally 1st September). If you have been living outside of the EU, you will need to 'establish a habitual, normal mode of life' in the UK during the last 3 years.
