Fees and financeA guide to our tuition fees for research students starting in 2014

Postgraduate fees are not regulated by the UK government so decisions on UK undergraduate fees do not apply to postgraduate fees. Our postgraduate fees are set independently and reviewed on an annual basis.

The fees listed below are meant as a guide only. Please check with the admissions team for your research area for accurate information.

Fees quoted are based on full-time study and apply for each year of the course. If you are studying part time the fee is normally adjusted based on the proportion of the course studied each year, but this is not always the case so please check.

International fees are fixed at the point of entry and will not rise in subsequent years of the course. This means you can more easily plan your finances at the outset.
