For part-time fees, contact the individual school or department.

The academic fee covers tuition and exam costs as well as membership of the students' union. The fees are higher than for home/EU students because they are not subsidised by the UK government, but you can get financial help from international scholarships

Fees for new students are likely to rise each year by an inflationary amount.

Extra charges

Some science subjects require an extra fee to cover lab costs. 

Future fees

If you are an international undergraduate or international postgraduate research student you will pay the same fixed fee for each year of your programme allowing you to plan your finances for the duration of your studies, with the exception of Medicine and Dentistry (see above). Find out when and how to pay

If you are supported by your government, employer, or other sponsor, you should provide a letter from them addressed to the University, confirming that the fees will be paid directly. Sponsors cannot pay by installments. Further details for sponsored students
