It is important that you ensure that you have adequate funds to cover your period of study before applying for admission.
The fees for visiting and exchange students in the 2012/2013 academic year are listed below. In most cases, fees are different for European Union (EU) students and non-EU students.
|EU students||non-EU students|
Exchange students are not usually liable for tuition fees for the term time programmes, but are for special programmes.
The fees listed online cover registration, tuition and examinations, but do not include fees for accommodation, extra-curricular language tuition, use of the sports facilities, membership of clubs and societies, photocopying, and printing.
Some courses may include a compulsory requirement for you to take part in a field trip (eg art history), for which you must pay the whole cost.
When you apply you will need to provide evidence of your ability to pay the fees (if you are a visiting student) and support yourself financially. Fees are normally paid in full when you first register, but instalment options are available.
Please note that all fees are liable to review and change without notice.
You should ensure that you have adequate funds to cover your period of study.
We estimate that to cover the cost of accommodation and other living expenses, a single self-supporting student (with no children) should budget for between at least £814 and £1,150 each month for the full academic year 2013/14 (39 weeks including vacation), in addition to tuition fees.
The following is a very generalised breakdown of how your living expenses might be allocated on a monthly basis. This figure is for guidance only; you may find that – depending on your lifestyle – you require more or less.
|Rent on campus✰||£254-£570|
|Food, laundry and household goods||£220|
|Books, equipment, photocopying, stationery||£60|
|Miscellaneous (healthcare, etc)||£55|
✰This is the range of rents for the academic year 2012/13 and will increase in future academic years. This table includes the cost of a shared room but excludes studios and family flats. Utility bills, internet access and contents insurance are included in the rent in all University-managed accommodation on campus. Utility charges may be payable in some University-managed accommodation off campus.
These prices are intended for guidance only and largely based on products available on campus at the time of going to press. Costs of items off campus may differ.
Many international students are allowed to do some part-time work while they study in the UK. Most nationals of EEA member countries have no restrictions on working in the UK. However, certain EEA nationals are required to obtain a registration certificate before undertaking employment.
Students from outside the EEA who will be studying in the UK for more than six months will usually be given a student visa or entry clearance that allows them to work part time during the term (up to 20 hours a week) and full time during vacations. Students on programmes lasting less than six months, and who wish to undertake employment, should make sure that they apply for prior entry clearance as a Tier 4 general student. Please note that you should not rely on employment in the UK to cover your normal living expenses.
