Tuition fees

Fixed-fee guarantee

We offer a special fixed-fee guarantee for international students taking courses longer than one year.

International students who start from August 2015 will pay the same fixed annual tuition fee for each year of their course. The tuition fee you pay in your first year will be the same for each year of your course. The only exception is if you are joining Medicine and Dentistry, where a clinical fixed fee will apply to the final years of your programme.

This means that you will know exactly how much you will pay each year before you start your studies. This will make it easier to plan and budget for your time in Sheffield.

Fee status

Students are charged different fees depending on whether they are classed as home or overseas for fee purposes. The main criterion for home status is; ordinary residence within the UK for three years prior to the start of the course providing that residence is not for the main purpose of receiving full-time education and; that by 1 September of the year of entry the applicant is "settled" in the UK.

In most cases status for fee purposes will be clear, but if there is any doubt it is essential that you should refer to the Admissions Officer for a ruling. In particular, commitments on the level of tuition fees to be charged should not be made without prior consultation with the Admissions Service.
