Flexible Payment

To help spread the cost of your studies, tuition fees can be paid back in monthly instalments while you learn.

View Payment Policy terms and conditions

International deposit

Students who are from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay a deposit of £2,000.

When you receive  an unconditional offer, and to secure your place, you will be asked to make a minimum deposit payment against your tuition fees, of £2,000.

A deposit payment does not signify that we will issue you with a Certificate of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). We view it as a sign of your commitment to study, and part of a staged admissions process.

A deposit is refundable, unless you are refused a visa on the grounds of forged documents being presented. In this case, the deposit is non-refundable.

Additional costs

Some courses may have additional costs which are not included in your tuition fee.

Check the individual programme specification for details as additional costs vary from course to course.

Tuition fees and costs associated with accommodation, travel (including car parking charges), and normal living are a part of university life.

Where a course has additional mandatory expenses we make every effort to highlight them.

These may include:

  • residential visits
  • field trips
  • materials (e.g. art, design, engineering) inoculations
  • security checks
  • computer equipment
  • uniforms
  • professional memberships etc.

We aim to provide students with the learning materials needed to support their studies.

Our libraries are a valuable resource with an extensive collection of books and journals as well as first-class facilities and IT equipment.

Computer suites and free wifi is also available on each of the campuses.

There will be some additional costs to being a student which cannot be itemised and these will be different for each student.

You may choose to purchase your own textbooks and course materials or prefer your own computer and software.

Printing and binding may also be required.

There are additional fees for graduation ceremonies, examination resits and library fines.

Students choosing a period of paid work placement or study abroad as part of their course should be aware that there may be additional travel and living costs as well as tuition fees.
