2018/19 Academic year tuition fee increases
Tuition fees are charged annually and may be subject to an annual increase. Information about the current level of tuition fees can be found below.
The UK government caps the annual fee that English universities are permitted to charge UK and EU undergraduate students. It's the UK government’s intention that the cap will increase in line with the RPIX measure of inflation (the Retail Prices Index, excluding mortgage interest payments) for higher education providers participating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The RPIX is a variable measure and as at date of publication of information, stood at 2.8%.
The next increase would be applied to the tuition fees payable for the 2018/19 academic year. It would be payable by students beginning their courses in that year and those continuing their courses from previous years.
Any increase to the tuition fee cap requires parliamentary approval. The government has not yet introduced the legislation necessary to increase the fee cap for the 2018/19 academic year. Therefore, the level of tuition fee we charge for the 2018/19 academic year will be dependent on this legislation passing through parliament.
This page will be updated with the confirmed tuition fees for the 2018/19 academic year shortly after the fee cap increase has been approved by parliament.

The Government is introducing loans for taught and research postgraduate Masters programmes commencing after 1 August 2016.
Students under the age of 60 may be eligible for loans of up to £10,000, which will be paid directly to them at 3 points during the academic year. These will be at the start of the course and then 4 months and 7 months into the course.
Am I eligible?
Students need to be studying a full Masters course (i.e. MA, MSc, MRes) commencing after 1 August 2016.
EU nationals and Distance Learners are eligible. Part time courses are also eligible as long as they meet the minimum 50% intensity requirement. Postgraduate student loans are not available to students who already hold a Masters qualification (or an equivalent or higher qualification) or those only studying to Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma level.
Repayments of these loans will be in addition to the current undergraduate student loan scheme.
