Additional fee information

Based on the latest information available to us, for new Home students enrolled on full-time undergraduate and PGCE courses starting in 2020, Aberystwyth University currently intends to charge a tuition fee of £9,000 for the academic year 2020/21. The Welsh Government is still to finalise arrangements for 2020/21 onwards, which means that for students starting in 2020/21 or after, tuition fees may rise for any successive years of study, mapped according to any inflation-linked maximum tuition fee permitted by the Welsh Government. These increases would also apply for the proportional fees charged for Year Abroad and Year in Industry. We will inform all applicants and students of the fee levels for 2020/21 and any inflation-linked increases for successive years of study as soon as confirmation is received from Welsh Government, and we will publish updates on our website. We recommend you check the updated fee information before applying. Up to date details of the relevant fees will be set out in our offer documentation, and your terms and conditions with us will describe how we may be entitled to increase or otherwise change fees during the period of your study with us. Costs not included in the tuition fee: The academic provision of the University includes certain elements of study away from Aberystwyth. These involve activities such as field trips in science degrees and visits to theatres, galleries and museums in humanities-based courses. The additional costs of such activities are not included in the overall University fee and you should, therefore, note the need to budget for them. Details of courses that have additional costs can be found on the Aberystwyth University website. These costs are given as an indication of likely cost and will vary as will the location and duration of the activity. Fuller details will be available from the department organising the activity.
