Masters fees

Masters fees are set on a course-by-course basis with fees information available on individual course pages. Visit Course Search to find the fees for your course.

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. 

Find out when to pay your fees and the payment options we offer.

If you are a Masters applicant to Leeds who needs a Student visa to study in the UK, you will need to pay a tuition fee deposit.

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary.

Part-time and distance learning students

If you are studying part-time, the full-time fee is generally split so payment is divided equally across each year of study. For example if your part-time course is two years long you will pay half each year. However, this is not always the case so please check with the admission team for your course.

If your course is 100% online, you may be able to pay on a module-by-module basis. Please check with the admissions tutor for your chosen course - contact details are listed for each course.

The majority of part-time postgraduate Masters 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.

Fee status assessment

You are classified as either a "home" or "international" student for the purpose of assessing tuition fees. Only certain categories of students will be charged the "home" tuition fee. Where it is not clear from your application form whether you have "home" or "international" status, we will carry out a fees assessment. For further information and advice, you can consult the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA).

Paying your tuition fees

You need to make arrangements to pay your tuition fees before the start of the academic year or you won't be able to register. Find out more about how to pay your tuition fees on our website For Students.

You become liable to pay tuition fees when you register on your course. If you leave before the end of your course, we calculate your fees based on your leaving date. Read more about tuition fee liability on our website For Students.

If you have a question about fee payment contact the Student Fees team:

Sponsored students

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.
