You are classified as either a home or international student for the purpose of assessing tuition fees. When we refer to UK and EU below this relates to home students. Where your status is not clear from your application form, you will enter our fee assessment process.

Tuition fees for UK and EU students

The UK government has confirmed that non-UK EU students starting in the 2020/2021 academic year will also have home fee status and be eligible for UK government student loans for the duration of their course. The UK government has not confirmed the situation for future years, so keep checking our website for updates.

If you're an eligible full-time or part-time UK or EU student (classified as a home student) you won't have to pay any tuition fees up front unless you want to. You'll be able to apply for a loan from the government to cover the full cost of your tuition fees and you won’t have to start paying it back until you are earning at least £25,716 a year working in the UK. Find out about repaying your loan from overseas.

Depending on your household income, financial assistance may also be available from us to help cover the cost of your tuition fees.

Tuition fees for 2020

Fees for full-time undergraduate courses

For UK and non-UK EU full-time students starting in 2020, the fee for 2020/21 will be £9,250.  

The fee may increase in future years of your course in line with inflation, and as permitted by law. Fees for UK and non-UK EU undergraduate students are decided by Government and may vary if policy changes. 

We will continue to offer financial support, bursaries and scholarships to students so that anyone with the talent and ambition can benefit from a Leeds education, regardless of background. Find out about funding available.

Study abroad and work placement years 

Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year: for students paying the £9,250 tuition fee, the reduced fee will be £1,385.

For full-time foundation year courses

Fees for foundation years automatically leading on to a degree will be the same as full-time undergraduate fees, but with tuition fee discount applied depending on household income.

For part-time undergraduate courses (UK and EU)

The annual fee will be a proportion of the full-time fee, calculated on the basis of the workload of the part-time course compared to an equivalent full-time course. If you are studying 60 credits it is half the full-time fee, 80 credits is equivalent to two-thirds of the fee.

Tuition fees for 2021 

Tuition fees for UK full-time undergraduate students starting in 2021/22 have not yet been confirmed by the UK government. In other years the government has confirmed fee levels in summer. When the fee is confirmed we will publish an update on this website.


Visit our Brexit page for the latest information on the effect of the UK's exit from the EU on current students and applicants to the University. 

Tuition fees for new international students

International fee information is available on individual course pages. Search our course finder to find the fees for your course.

Fees quoted are based on full-time study and apply for each year of the course. These fees are fixed at this level for each year of your course allowing you to plan your finances for the duration of your studies.

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

Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year. The amount will depend on your year of entry. For students starting in 2020 the reduced fee will be £6,250.

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 instalments.
