There are a range of funding opportunities available to postgraduate students designed to contribute to tuition fees and assist with the cost of living while you are studying.

Postgraduate tuition fees 2024/25

You will find tuition fees listed on the ‘Fees and funding’ tab of each course page. All students are advised to check their eligibility for financial support with the relevant funding provider(s).

Tuition fees are charged for each year of your course (unless stated). Fees for second and subsequent years are likely to increase annually in line with UK inflation as measured by the Retail Price Index (RPI-X). They will not normally increase by more than 5 per cent each year, except when the rate of inflation is significantly more than that projected in the preceding year.

  • other disability-related study support
