Tuition fees for Home/EU Undergraduates

If this is your first degree and you are a Home or EU student, you do not have to pay your fees upfront. Instead, you can take out a tuition fee loan which is paid straight to the University. This is available to most students, no matter what their household income (including EU students).

For students applying for 2018/19 entry

The Government announced in October 2017 that tuition fees will be frozen at £9,250 for 2018/19 entry and that the repayment threshold for post-2012 student loans will rise from £21,000 to £25,000. This page will be updated with further information as we receive it.


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 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.

Programme-specific additional costs

Some programmes which include compulsory fieldwork or additional elements such as the Pilots Licence in Aerospace Engineering may incur additional costs. Where this is the case, those costs will be outlined at on-campus events such as the University Open Days or Applicant Discovery Days.


Study 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 have put together tables of additional costs for guidance, for each subject area, including where departments make contributions towards these costs. See our study costs page.
