Tuition fees

You may be aware that the maximum fee we are permitted to charge for Home (UK/EU) students is set by the UK government.

Further to revised regulations on tuition fees agreed by parliament, for new entrants to courses in 2017 the University of Sheffield Home (UK/EU) undergraduate fee will be £9,250.

The University will review tuition fees each year. The current expectation is that we will increase fees for each year of study in line with inflation as specified by parliament. Eligible UK and EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan from the UK government.

The fees to be charged by the University are updated on the University website and if there is any inconsistency between a print publication (such as the prospectus) and the website, the website should be taken as correct.

All UK and EU students who meet the eligibility criteria can apply for a tuition fee loan each year to cover the full cost of their tuition. This means that no student has to find the money themselves to pay their fees before or during their course.

Students apply for their loan online, applications usually open early February. 

The loan doesn’t have to be repaid until students have left university and are earning more than £21,000 per year. When students do earn above this amount they repay 9% of anything they earn above this threshold.

You can check the full eligibility criteria, repayment details and find information on applying for support on the government website.

Students can pay all, or some of their fees themselves. Further details on how to do this can be found on our How to pay page or you can call our Registration Helpline on 0114 222 1288.
