Welcome to the Finance Department's web page. Here you will find useful information including tuition fee costs and how to make payment, links to our Online Store and Student Fee Regulations.
Student fees are defined as any charges for tuition, accommodation, the use of special equipment, consumables/materials and facilities, library fines, charges for the non-return of equipment, field trips, travel costs, attendance at performances, printing and unpaid hardship loans. The fees rise each year to allow for a combination of factors, including inflation. However, the percentage rise is not necessarily the same as the rate of inflation in any one year, because inflation is just one factor of many which are considered when setting the University's fees. UK undergraduate fees are regulated by the Government.
The tuition fees contribute to providing the resources, staff contact and the support students need as well as an attractive learning environment. Any changes for the following academic year will ordinarily be confirmed by 1 January. Students should budget for a likely increase of between 3 and 5% for each further year of study.
The University will review the fees liability of students whose registered status changes during the academic session, for example in the case of a student who moves from full-time to part-time study. In such cases, the fee liability will generally be determined by the date on which the change of status is effected.
Note: EU students commencing study in 2018 will continue to have access to student loans and have home fee status until they complete their course.
Part Time Module Charges
To calculate the tuition fee cost based on the number of credits contained in a module: for example BUS020X622 - look at the number showing in the middle of the module BUS020X622. This denotes that this module has a value of 20 credits. The cost for 10 credits in this example is £750, so the cost for this module will be £1,500 (2 x £750)
Our payment options can be found here
Other Charges and Fees: Students undertaking certain programmes and courses may be required to pay an additional fee to cover part or all the cost of special equipment, consumables or facilities over and above the tuition fee. Where applicable these mandatory course costs include field trips, travel costs and attendance at performances. We encourage you to check with the relevant academic school or department when you choose your modules so that you are aware of any extra costs you will incur.
Scholarships, Bursaries and Discounts: All scholarships offered by the University are awarded based on completion of the year of study for which they are granted. Students withdrawing or interrupting their studies during the course of the academic year will have any scholarships awarded withdrawn and will become liable for any tuition fee shortfall as a result. Students who withdraw or interrupt their studies will only be entitled to the proportion of scholarship or bursary that relates to their period of study. For more information please visit our Scholarship page
A 2% discount will be given to all students who make full payment of their tuition fees online by the published date of enrolment.
A 20% tuition fee discount on campus-based courses will be given for all UK, EU and international alumni holding a full undergraduate degree or postgraduate qualification and those who studied here on an exchange/study abroad programme, for any higher programme of study. This reduction will be applied to the tuition fee prior to payment.
Penalties for late or Non-Payment of Tuition Fees for Self-Funding Students: Failure to pay fees within 30 days of the due date will result in the immediate termination of registration and, in the case of international students, reporting to UKBA in accordance with the University's Tier 4 Sponsorship Licence. The University reserves the right to withhold the award of a degree, diploma or certificate to a student who has not paid their tuition fees in full. Students who are registered on a programme of study and have overdue tuition fees, and have not contacted the Finance Department to discuss an alternative payment plan, will have their access to University facilities suspended. This includes computer access, University network access and access to any areas requiring a Student ID card. Students may also have their registration at the University suspended.
Withdrawals and Interruptions of Study: The student's date of withdrawal or interruption of studies is the date which the student enters on the official Withdrawal (SR8) or Interruption of Studies (SR5) form as the last date of attendance. This must be confirmed by the signature of the appropriate Programme Convener.
