International fees and funding

Fees and funding for international students

There are various costs you’ll need to consider when you come to study in the UK.

Costs can include your tuition fees, accommodation fees and living costs for things like food, transport and social activities.  

How to finance your studies will be an important part of your decision making. Funding may be available from government, independent sponsors or other funding bodies. You might also be eligible for a scholarship from us to help with the cost of studying at Leeds, which doesn’t have to be repaid.

Course fees

Your course fees depend on your level of study: undergraduate, Masters or postgraduate research.
