Tuition fees

Additional course costs

We want to try and help you prepare for the day-to-day costs of studying. These might include things like photocopying in the library, buying textbooks and specialist equipment or going on field classes. We've put together some useful information to help you understand these costs, including where subsidies are available from your academic department. Please see our study costs page for full details.

Home Undergraduates

Tuition fees for the academic year 2022 are £9,250.

The University reviews tuition fees each year. The current expectation is that the University will increase fees for each year of study normally in line with inflation as specified by Parliament. This is likely to be the Retail Price Index (RPIX)* measure of inflation. This means your fees will rise in line with inflation for each year of study.

Student fee loans are also expected to rise in line with the fee cap, to ensure that higher education remains affordable to all.

Exceptions to the £9,250 fee:

Some of our programmes charge less than the full £9,250 fee:

  • Foundation programmes: the fee for the foundation year of specified programmes at Carmel College and Birkenhead Sixth Form College is £5,140.
  • Programmes with a Foundation element: Psychology BSc (Hons) (2+2 programme with Foundation element) is run in collaboration with Wirral Metropolitan College. The fee for the first two years is set by Wirral Metropolitan College.
  • Programmes with a year in industry or a year abroad: the fee for students spending a full year working in industry is £1,850. The fee for students spending a full year abroad is £1,385.

*RPIX is a measure of inflation in the UK, equivalent to the all items in the Retail Price Index (RPI) excluding mortgage interest payments.
