Fees and funding

There are a number of sources of funding available to help you finance your studies.

Fees and payments

Programme Tuition fees (including £250 acceptance fee) Payment options
Masters £13,295 Pay in full or in a maximum of six instalments* of £2,174 spread across a two-year period.
Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) £8,850 Pay in full or in four instalments of £2,150.
Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) £4,450 Pay in full or in two instalments of £2,100.

For all programmes, a £250 acceptance fee, that is offset against the total payable, is applicable. Your acceptance fee should be paid within 14 days after receiving your offer.

*Whichever payment option you choose, the full payment or the first of the 6 instalments is required four weeks before the course starts unless you are receiving funding from the Student Finance (SF) organisation. In this case they will be due two weeks after you receive your first SF instalment.

To be eligible for this deferred payment, you must send us a copy of your Postgraduate Loan Summary letter as soon as your loan is approved by SF and no later than two weeks before your course starts.

Please see our Fee Policy for more information on instalments and SF.
