Tuition fees for 2017 entry

Fee information for UK, EU and international students for 2017/18.

Tuition fees are payable to Cardiff University for each year of your course (including repeat years). For an approximate total cost, therefore, fees should be multiplied by the number of years of study.

Funding is available towards the cost of tuition fees, depending on where you live before starting your course. Check our loans and grants pages for more information.

Fees after year one

UK and EU undergraduate full-time tuition fee levels for students living in Wales and starting their degrees in 2017 will remain at £9,000 per year for the duration of their course.

Deferred entry

If you are considering deferring your 2017 entry to 2018, please note that the changes to fee levels and funding announced by the Welsh Government will apply to your course from the first year.

Modern Chinese (BA)

Unlike our typical year abroad programmes, this unique opportunity to gain a dual degree from Cardiff University and Beijing Normal University (BNU), is supported by means of a bursary. Typically, tuition at BNU costs around £4,500 per annum, however both Beijing Normal University and Cardiff University are providing a bursary for all students accepted onto this programme in the form of partial tuition fee contributions for Years 2 and 3. Students will therefore only be required to cover the standard Cardiff University year abroad fees for these two years.
