Tuition fees for UK students starting in 2021/22
Tuition fees in England are set to be frozen by the Government for 2021/2022. For UK full-time students starting in 2021, the fee for 2021/22 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 undergraduate students are decided by the Government and may vary if policy changes.
If you're an eligible full-time or part-time UK student (classified as a home student) you won't have to pay any tuition fees up front unless you want to. Our page on what financial help is available covers how you're 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 £26,568 a year working in the UK. The Government site explains how to repay your student 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. You can check your eligibility for Leeds financial assistance.
EU students starting their course in the 2021/22 academic year or later will now be classed as international students and so will need to pay the international student tuition fee. See the international fees section of this page.
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. We have information on what undergraduate funding is available.
Study abroad and work placement years for UK students
Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year: for home students paying the £9,250 tuition fee, the reduced fee will be £1,385.
For full-time foundation year courses (UK)
Fees for foundation years automatically leading on to a degree will be the same as full-time undergraduate fees, but financial support is available depending on household income.
For part-time undergraduate courses (UK)
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 international students starting in 2021/22
International fee information is available on individual course pages. Search our Coursefinder 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 students because they are not subsidised by the UK government. We have a range of subject specific scholarships. Read more about our subject-related scholarships and the criteria for award.
Study abroad and work placement years for international students
Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year. The amount will depend on your year of entry.
For international students starting their studies in 2021/22, the reduced fee for a work or study abroad placement year will be £3,375.
We have information on fees and funding for incoming exchange and study abroad students, and on fees and scholarships for Leeds International Summer School 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.
