    University and College Fees to be combined from next year

    If you’re a graduate student or international undergraduate, the way your fees are charged and presented will change from the next academic year.

    Until this year, international undergraduates and graduate students have been charged separate ‘University’ and ‘College’ fees. From the 2019/20 academic year, these figures will be combined into a single figure, known as  ‘Course Fees’.

    The total amount you pay will not change (apart from inflation), and the change will make it easier to see the overall level of fees you will be paying.
