Postgraduate fees (UK students)

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.

January 2023 entry

10% tuition fee discount*

You may be able to benefit from a 10% discount towards your postgraduate taught degree (part-time or full-time) tuition fee if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • you have completed and graduated from an undergraduate degree course at Teesside University in the academic years 2020-21 or 2021-22; or
  • you have completed and graduated with first-class honours from an undergraduate degree course at any other university in the last two academic years (2020-21 or 2021-22); supporting evidence is required.

This offer applies to students enrolling on a postgraduate course for September 2022 or January 2023 entry only and the discount will automatically be applied to your fee if you met the qualifying criteria.

* Please note, unless otherwise stated, this offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other fee reduction scheme or discount offer. The University reserves the right to amend the amount of any reduction and/or the qualifying criteria at any time.

Some specialist courses are charged differently, with a non-standard fee. This fee is listed on the relevant course page. Otherwise, our standard fees are as follows:

  • £6,100 for a standard tier full-time taught postgraduate degree (MA/MSc) or £680 for 20 credits for part-time
  • £6,695 for an enhanced tier full-time taught postgraduate degree (MA/MSc) or £745 for 20 credits for part-time
  • £7,870 (£3,395 a year) for a standard tier two year full-time postgraduate degree (MA/MSc)
  • £8,670 (£4,335 a year) for an enhanced tier two year full-time postgraduate degree (MA/MSc)
  • £4,065 for a standard tier full-time postgraduate diploma (PgDip) or £680 for 20 credits for part-time
  • £4,465 for an enhanced tier full-time postgraduate diploma (PgDip) or £745 for 20 credits for part-time

  • £6,000 a year for an enhanced tier full-time research degree or £3,000 for part-time per year
  • The research degree writing up fee is £650.

Enhanced fees are charged for certain programmes to reflect the higher costs associated with 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. If 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.

Courses with non-standard fees are not eligible for fee discounts

EU students

Due to the UK's withdrawal from the EU, the UK Government issued new eligibility rules for home fee status and student finance from the 2021-22 academic year. For EU Students, this means that, subject to certain exceptions, you are not eligible for home fee status and student finance from 1 August 2021. Please refer to the full eligibility rules for full details.
