The fees stated above are for the 2024/25 academic year; fees for 2025/26 have not yet been confirmed by the UK government. We will update this information as soon as it is available.

University fees and charges can be paid in advance and there are several methods of payment, including online payments and payment by instalment. While the cost of your tuition covers lots of things, it doesn’t cover everything.
