Postgraduate tuition fees
Postgraduate fees vary depending on course, mode and level of study.
Paying tuition fees
You can pay your tuition fees in one of the following ways:
- payment in full before or on enrolment
- payment by direct debit in three instalments (normally payable in November, January and April), or in one instalment if the sum due is £300 or less
- if direct debit is not an option, payment of one-third of the fee before or on enrolment, followed by payment of one-third of the fee in January and April.
For more information on paying fees, please see our new student pages.
Fees status for international students
Tuition fees status is determined during the processing of applications, so we are unable to confirm this in advance or advise on fees status decisions.
If you are unsure of your fee status, refer to our guiding principles of fee assessment.
