    Please note that your fees will be reduced by the relevant amount after we have received your household income information from Student Finance. Students with a residual household income in excess of £42,875 pay the full undergraduate fee.

    Part-time students

    If you're studying part-time, the support you will get from us will be a proportion of the support available to full-time students. Support will be calculated on the basis of the workload of your part-time course compared to an equivalent full-time course. The tuition fee for your course will be calculated on the same basis.
