Tuition fees for UK and EU students | 2018 entry
If you’re an eligible full-time or part-time UK or EU student (classified as a home student) you won’t have to pay any tuition fees up front unless you want to. You’ll be able to apply for a loan from the government to cover the full cost of your tuition fees and you won’t have to start paying it back until you are earning at least £25,000 a year working in the UK. Find out about repaying your loan from overseas
Depending on your household income, financial assistance may also be available from us to help cover the cost of your tuition fees.
If you are a UK or EU student planning to come to Leeds in September 2018 our fees will be:
For full-time undergraduate courses
For UK and non-UK EU* students starting in 2018 the fee for 2018/19 will be £9,250.
The fee may increase in future years of your course in line with inflation, and as permitted by law. For example, the increase of 2.8% in 2017/18 was based on the government’s forecast for the RPI-X measure of inflation.
We will continue to offer financial support, bursaries and scholarships to students so that anyone with the talent and ambition can benefit from a Leeds education, regardless of background. Find out about funding available
*See our EU referendum page for our latest information on the effect of the UK’s exit from the EU on current students and applicants to the University.
Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year:
- For students paying the £9,250 tuition fee, the reduced fee will be £1,385.
- For students paying the £9,000 tuition fee, the reduced fee will be £1,350.
For full-time foundation year courses
Fees for foundation years automatically leading on to a degree will be the same as full-time undergraduate fees, but with tuition fee discount applied depending on household income.
For part-time undergraduate courses (UK and EU)
The annual fee will be a proportion of the full-time fee, calculated on the basis of the workload of the part-time course compared to an equivalent full-time course. If you are studying 60 credits it is half the full-time fee, 80 credits is equivalent to two-thirds of the fee.
Tuition fees for new international students
International fee information is available on individual course pages. Search our course finder to find the fees for your course.
Fees quoted are based on full-time study and apply for each year of the course. These fees are fixed at this level for each year of your course allowing you to plan your finances for the duration of your studies.
The academic fee covers tuition and exam costs as well as membership of the students’ union. The fees are higher than for UK / Non-UK EU students because they are not subsidised by the UK government, but you can get financial help from international scholarships
Fees will be substantially reduced for a study abroad or work placement year. The amount will depend on your year of entry. For students starting in 2018 the reduced fee will be £5,850.
If you are supported by your government, employer, or other sponsor, you should provide a letter from them addressed to the University, confirming that the fees will be paid directly. Sponsors cannot pay by instalments.
