Masters Fees and Funding

Tuition fees

Tuition fees for our taught postgraduate degrees are set independently and reviewed on an annual basis. Fees vary by course.

Students are required to pay tuition fees on all of our postgraduate courses. The fees you will pay will depend on your nationality and which programme you would like to study.

Tuition fees are displayed on the respective course page


If you are an international student, remember that you will have to prove that you have enough funds to meet tuition fees and living costs in order to be allowed to study in the UK.
