Postgraduate fees

Fees for taught courses

Fees are found on course pages, which include the home/EU and overseas fees for each programme and for each mode of attendance (full-time, part-time, distance-learning or associate).

  • Full-time – fee applies for one year. Where programme regulations allow students to complete the course over a longer period, an extension fee will apply in subsequent years.
  • Part-time (where applicable) – tuition fees are usually half of the corresponding full-time fees, and they apply in each of the first two years of study. Where a part-time course is set up to run for more than two years, any subsequent period will not be charged. In all cases, an extension fee will apply to any period of study (including dissertation submission) beyond the normal course end date.
  • Distance-learning (where applicable) – fee applies for the whole course, or per module. Where fees are paid by module, it is assumed that four modules will be taken each year unless the student notifies the Programme Administrator otherwise. Module fees are subject to an annual increase.
  • Associate – fee is per module. Students who wish to be considered for an award for their studies must register on a full programme.
