Postgraduate study

Postgraduate fees, September 2017 entry

Investing in your future

We can tell you the price of a postgraduate degree - but that's not the same as its value. You really can't put a price on turning your dream into reality.

Taught degree tuition fee

A postgraduate taught degree starting in 2017 costs £4,590 for UK/EU students (that's £510 for 20 credits). This is the full cost of the course, whether you study it full time or part time.

An MBA starting in 2017 is £10,250 for UK/EU students.

Our package

Research degree tuition fee

  • A full-time postgraduate research degree starting in 2017 costs £4,590 a year (standard tier) and £7,290 a year (higher tier*) for UK/EU students.
  • A part-time postgraduate research degree starting in 2017 costs £2,295 a year (standard tier) and £3,645 a year (higher tier*) for UK/EU students.

*Higher tier fees are charged for MPhil and PhD study based in the School of Science & Engineering to reflect the higher costs of these disciplines. The fee applicable will be clearly stated in your offer letter.

After a period of three years (five years for part-time students), and once the data gathering and analysis phase of the project is completed, students are entitled to a period of one year (two years for part-time students) at which a reduced writing-up fee is payable. The writing-up fee for 2017-18 is £650 - this flat fee covers the writing-up period. If the work is not submitted for examination within the designated writing-up period, the fee will normally revert to the standard fee for the following year.

Health degree tuition fee

A different fee and funding structure exists for UK and European Union students studying the following full-time postgraduate courses:

Students on these courses are normally eligible for a Department of Health means-tested bursary with additional allowances where appropriate. If you are in receipt of a Department of Health bursary you won't have to pay tuition fees. European Union students are not usually entitled to Department of Health bursaries.
