Undergraduate tuition fees

Find out what fees apply to undergraduate degrees at Royal Holloway

Whatever undergraduate degree you choose at Royal Holloway, there is an annual fee. This fee varies depending on whether you’re a UK resident, living in Europe or applying from outside the European Union.

The tuition fee for students starting their degree in 2020/21 is set by the Government, and will be £9,250 for that year. The fee for students starting in 2021/22 has also been confirmed by the Government as £9,250 for that year. 

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

For EU students starting their course in September 2020, the UK Government has confirmed you will be eligible for home fee status for the duration of your course. This means you will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students (see above). You can also apply to receive student loans, and if you are assessed as eligible you will continue to receive these throughout your course. The Student Loans Company website is the definitive source of funding information.

For EU students starting their course in September 2021, the UK Government has recently confirmed that you will not be eligible to pay the same fees as UK students, nor be eligible for funding from the Student Loans Company. This means you will be classified as an international student.

At Royal Holloway, we wish to support those students affected by this change in status through this transition. For eligible EU students starting their course with us in September 2021, we will award an automatic fee reduction which brings your fee into line with the fee paid by UK students. This will apply for the duration of your course.

A decision on the level of fee for EU students starting their course with us in September 2022 has not yet been made.

See fee details by searching for your course on course finder.

Your tuition fee will be for the year of entry, not for the year in which the application was made.

You can fund your tuition fee in a number of ways, including student loans and paying them yourself.

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

The UK government sets guidelines on who is eligible to pay the UK/EU rate of fees.

Read guidance on who qualifies

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

When you apply to Royal Holloway a provisional decision is made on your fee status.

You can check this on Royal Holloway Direct, once an offer is made.
