Fees and charges guidelines 2015/16

Fees and charges for undergraduates starting in 2015.

Tuition fees

All students pay annual fees which cover tuition and some examination costs (re-examination fees are paid separately). Details of any course specific costs are available on department pages.

UK undergraduate fees are regulated by the government. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

The University can confirm that there will be no change in tuition fees in the next academic year (2017/18) for continuing undergraduate students with Home, EU or Island fee status.

The full-time fee for new Home/EU/Island undergraduates in 2017/18 will be £9,250. Fees for placement and study abroad will increase by the same proportion from 2016/17 levels. Fee information for new students who will begin their studies 2017/18 can be found on the page Undergraduate tuition fees 2017/18.

EU/Island undergraduate fees for students commencing study in, or prior to, 2017/18 will be the same as the UK undergraduate fee for the duration of their course.

You should budget for an increase of up to 5% each year for every further year of study; we will not increase your fees each year by more than this percentage and the amount will be set out on our fee page in December for the following academic year.

The fees below relate to the 2017/18 academic year only.
