Tuition fees 2017/18

Your tuition fees and how you pay them will depend on whether you are a Home/EU/Island student or an Overseas student.

Home/EU/Island fees for students starting in 2017

All students pay annual fees which cover tuition and some examination costs (re-examination fees are paid separately). Details of any course-specific costs can be provided by your department.

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.

Paying for your fees

UK and EU students do not have to pay tuition fees upfront.

If you are a student from the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man entering your programme from 2012/13 onwards, you will be charged fees at the same rate as those paid by Home/EU students.

The Government will provide a tuition fee loan which you do not have to repay until you are employed and earning £21,000 per year.

If you are an international student or do not wish to pay for your fees using a tuition fee loan then you will need to pay your fees to us directly.

Fee status

If we offer you a place, we will decide whether you are a UK/EU/Island or overseas student for fees purposes. We will then be in a position to give you more detailed information on the costs of your programme of study.  Find out how we determine tuition fee status.
