Terms and conditions

The Fees, funding and scholarship search is intended as a guide to the amount you will be liable to pay and any support you may receive based on the information you enter. All figures in the search tool are in pounds sterling (£).

Fee information

The fees displayed are annual rates for full-time study unless otherwise specified. You should expect and budget for fees increasing on an annual basis. Fees for the forthcoming academic year are published in September of the current academic year.

EU students should refer to our dedicated webpage for details on the impact of the result of the UK referendum on its membership of the European Union.

Fee status classification

  • The University follows government regulations on fee status classification. This classification depends on certain nationality and residence conditions.
  • Island rates are only payable by new students from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man and applying to study Medicine or Graduate Entry Medicine (for which higher rates apply to the clinical years of both courses). For all other programmes, Islands students are charged at the Home/EU rate.

University tuition fees


For Overseas students the six year version of this course charges three years of fees at the pre-clinical rate and three years at the clinical rate. The graduate-entry version charges one year at the pre-clinical rate and three years at the clinical rate. For Islands students fees are aligned with the Home/EU rate for pre-clinical years but are significantly higher for the clinical years.

Courses with a year abroad

Undergraduate courses with a compulsory or optional year abroad are marked with * in the course name. These courses charge a reduced fee during the year abroad.


The ELQ rate applies to some continuing students reading for a qualification at an equivalent or lower level to one they already hold.

Part-time courses

Courses offered on a part-time basis are indicated in the course title. Fees shown are the part-time annual University tuition fee.

OUDCE courses

For a number of Department for Continuing Education (OUDCE) courses, the University tuition fee also includes some accommodation.

Modular courses

A number of graduate taught courses are taught and charged on a modular basis. These courses are not included in the Fees, funding and scholarship search. Information is available on the OUDCE website and the University's modular course fee page.

Length of fee paying period

For undergraduate courses, fees are payable for every year a student is on course. Refer to information on fees during periods of suspension.
