Postgraduate research 2017 and 2018 entry tuition fees

This page provides information about postgraduate research fees for 2017 and 2018 entry.

Tuition fee policy

Fee payable in 2018/19: Tuition fees increase by 4 per cent rounded up to the nearest £100 for subsequent years of study. Any start date other than October will attract a pro-rata fee for that year of entry (75 per cent for January, 50 per cent for April and 25 per cent for July).

From September 2018, the Student Loans Company will be introducing a new Postgraduate Doctoral Loan for UK and EU nationals living in England.  Eligible students will be entitled to borrow up to £25,000 for the whole course but this will only be available to students who start after 1 September 2018.  If you intend to start in July 2018 or earlier, you would not be able to receive this loan at any point for the duration of your studies. 

If you never intend to apply for this loan and wish to start in July 2018, then please disregard this message.  However if you think it may be of interest to you now or in the future, we would advise deferring your entry to after September 2018. 

Find out more information on the Postgraduate Doctoral Loan including eligibility and repayment information.
