Student Finance Centre
This page is relevant to you if you will be a new student starting your course in 2013/14 for the first time. If you started your studies in 2012/13 or earlier please visit our current students section.
In 2013/14, tuition fees for full-time Home and EU undergraduate students will be £8,750 (and will increase each year with inflation). Tuition fees for NHS funded courses, part-time students, postgraduate students and International students vary, please visit our fee lookup facility to find specific fees for these courses (fees will be available here from November 2012).
You can 'Study First and Pay Later' with a Fee Loan
Eligible Home (UK) and EU undergraduate and PGCE students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of their fees. This loan is not income-assessed so your household income is not included in the assessment. You can pay your fees in full up-front if you would prefer.
You can also borrow any amount up to the total charged for your course or you may choose to 'part-pay and part-borrow'. If you decide to take the loan, it will be paid directly to the university on your behalf. Your repayments will not commence until the April after you finish your course (or four years after you start your studies for part-time students) and only if you are earning over £21,000 (gross) or more per year.
If you need to repeat a year of study you may need to pay your tuition fees yourself. All students are eligible for three years of funding, plus one year (to allow for re-takes), minus any previous higher education study. Therefore, if you repeat more than one year then you will need to make other arrangements to pay your fees. For further information see our useful information for current students section.
For important information about the registration and tuition fee payment process, and what happens if you do not pay your fees, visit our Academic Registry pages.
Additional financial support available
There is lots of other financial help available in the form of loans and non-repayable grants and bursaries. Visit our funding information pages for more on the support available.
If you opt to pay your tuition fees direct to the university you can either pay in full before the start of your course (in which case a 2% discount applies) or via five monthly instalments. All tuition fee payments are made to the Finance Department, based in University House. For details about ways to pay your fees click here.
