Fees and funding

There are many ways you can fund your studies.

The two main costs to consider are tuition fees and living costs. It’s a good idea to plan your finances before starting your course.

Doctoral funding

Check our funding opportunities for doctoral studies.

Paying your tuition fees

Details of your tuition fees are included with your offer letter. If you have any specific questions, please contact the admissions team in your school or department using the contact details on your offer letter. 

For questions about payment, please call the Student Finance (Fees) team on +44 (0)113 343 6700 or email the Student Finance (Fees) team at pgfees@leeds.ac.uk.

If you require a Student visa to study in the UK, once you have accepted an unconditional offer you will be asked to provide evidence that you are fully funded by a University-recognised sponsor or scholarship.
