Cost of Attendance

A Cost of Attendance (COA) provides students with an indication of the cost of undertaking their chosen course at Brunel University London for one academic year and the associated eligibility for US Direct Loans.

The COA is an indicative cost which enables students to decide how much funding they will require from US Direct Loans.

After we have received your SAR we will issue you with a personalised COA.
