Cost of studying abroad at Sheffield

One of the first things new students ask us about Sheffield is how much things cost here. The answer is pretty simple: less than they cost elsewhere.

Living in Sheffield is 10 per cent cheaper than the UK average. And it's 25 per cent cheaper than London.

The cost of your study abroad experience will probably be one of the most important areas when it comes to choosing your study abroad destination. In order to help you work out how much it may cost to come to Sheffield, please review the table below.

You will notice a range in price for accommodation, this is because there are different contract lengths and standards of rooms.

Tuition Fees for non exchange students
One semester £7,000
Academic year (two semesters) £12,075

Additional costs not included in the Exchange:

  • Field trips outside of the University - fees for field trips which are part of the course, e.g. in Geography, are payable by the student
