Tuition fees and scholarships

International fees apply to any students who live outside of the European Union (EU). Students from countries within the EU pay the same tuition fees as students from the UK.

Not sure of your nationality classification? Check if your country is in the EU.

Tuition fees for international students are higher than the fees for UK and EU students because the UK Government subsidises the cost of university tuition for students from the UK and EU.
