What you need to know:

Undergraduates using computers

The University of Sheffield Home (UK/EU) undergraduate fee for 2018 entry is £9,250.

The University will review tuition fees each year and they may increase 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.

These pages explain how it all works:

  • Government loans are available.
  • You don't have to pay anything back until you're earning over £25,000 a year.
  • You could get a bursary or a scholarship from us.

A Sheffield degree is a preparation for life and the world of work

Coming to Sheffield changes everything. It gives you an edge in the careers market, but it's more than that. What you learn and the way you learn it shapes you as a person, makes you ready for anything.

It's an experience you benefit from for the rest of your life.

You don't have to pay upfront

In fact, you don't have to pay a penny until you're earning over £25,000 a year.

If you stop earning, you stop paying. It's as simple as that.

Loans and grants

You can get a loan to cover the full cost of your tuition fees for each year of your course. You can also apply for a maintenance loan to contribute to your living costs.
