Financial Information

Full Time Undergraduate Tuition Fees

Full time undergraduate fees for the year are £4,160 for students who normally live in Northern Ireland and £9,250 for students who normally live in England, Scotland or Wales (GB Students). Eligible students can apply for a tuition fee loan.  Students also have the option to pay their tuition fees either in whole or in part and thus reduce any potential student debt on graduating.  Tuition fee rates are assessed each year.

Assistance with payment of tuition fees is available by applying to Student Finance NI or other sponsoring bodies (e.g. LEAs for English, Scottish or Welsh students). If you have not already received an application form from Student Finance NI, you should contact them as soon as possible. 

Non-UK EU Students (includes ROI Students)

For the academic year 2018-2019, all Non-UK EU students starting in full time Higher Education in this year will have to pay £4,160 per year towards the cost of their education.  Students may be entitled to help with their tuition fees subject to eligibility and financial income.  Students must apply to the Student Finance Services European Team if you are an EU student. It is important that students apply for help as soon as possible. Late applicants result in students being required to pay the full fees until your assessment has been completed.

Non-EU International Students

For the academic year 2018-2019, the tuition fee for all non-EU International students starting in full time higher education in this year will be £15,550
