The University is committed to providing you with a transparent fee structure with no hidden course costs so that you can make informed decisions about the costs of study.

3 2 Paying tuition fees Government Tuition Fee Loan You can take out a loan to cover the full tuition fee for each year of your course. This is open to eligible full or part-time UK and EU students and doesn t depend on your family income. If you choose to pay your fees with a Tuition Fee Loan, the money will be paid directly to the University. The loan doesn t need to be paid back until you ve left University and are earning more than 21,000. More information on repayments can be found at: Payment by instalments If you re planning on paying the tuition fees yourself then there are a range of payment methods available, including setting up a Direct Debit to pay in instalments. More information can be found at: Full-time students! Make sure you apply for your funding as early as possible. You don t need to have a confirmed place at University before you apply! Visit:
