Tuition fees 2012-2013
Overseas Student Fee Levels
You will probably be aware of the UK government's recent proposals to increase the fee levels that UK/EU undergraduate students pay for their education. The government is proposing that from 2012, UK/EU students will pay £6000-£9000 per year for their degrees, up from around £3000 currently.
We understand that some of you are worried about what will now happen to international tuition fees. In particular, we have heard concerns that overseas fees will also double or triple as a result.
We would like to reassure you that this is not the case.
UK/EU students are being asked to pay more because the government is reducing the amount of funding it gives to universities to support the teaching of UK/EU students. This means that UK /EU students will in future (once they have graduated) need to make a much greater contribution to the cost of their degree.
Overseas student fees will not be affected in the same way. We anticipate that the University will therefore continue with the current system of setting overseas fees on an annual basis, with fees increasing by modest increments each year. This will be the case both for current students on courses that last for more than one year, and for international students who start their course in 2011, 2012 or later.
