Understanding your tuition fees

You pay tuition fees at the beginning of each year. The fee rates depend on your fee status.

You should also budget for extra costs in addition to your tuition fees.

Fees for Home, EU and Island students

If you are an EU or Island student and start your course in the 2017/18 academic year, you will pay the same fees as Home students throughout your course.

If you aren't paying your fees in British pounds, you should also budget for possible fluctuations in your own currency.

Legal information

These fees are for the academic year 2017/18 only. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

UK undergraduate fees are regulated by the government. These fees are subject to parliamentary approval.

If you are an EU undergraduate student starting your studies in or before 2017/18, your fees will be the same as the UK undergraduate fee for the length of your course.

For all other fees, you should budget for an increase of up to 5% for every further year of study. We will not increase your fees each year by more than this percentage and the amount for the following academic year will be set out on our fee pages in December.
