Part-time course fees 2013-2014

The tuition fee for new part-time UK/EU Undergraduate students in 2013-2014 is £3,375 for 60 credits.

There are various ways to pay for your tuition fees at University and these include:

  • You apply for a full or partial University fee waiver
  • You apply for a student loan from Student Finance England (SFE)
  • You pay your own fees, in full or by pre-set instalments or your employer pays your fees

If you don't already have a degree and take out a tuition fee loan you won’t have to pay anything up front. You'll only start to make payments after four years, and then only once your earnings are above £21,000. If you are on a low income, you may be able to get one or more modules completely free!
