Tuition fees

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 2016

These fee levels have been approved by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA).

Full-time

Programme of study Annual fee
Full-time, campus-based programmes, including Foundation Degree Sport (Sports Performance) £9,000
Full-time foundation degrees offered by partner institutions £7,500

The Student Finance Office has information about fees charged in previous years, along with fees you will be required to pay during any placement or study abroad period.

Please note that if you are applying for deferred entry to start from 2017 onwards, Home/EU tuition fees are subject to government review.

Overseas tuition fees for students starting in 2016

These fees are for the academic year 2016/17 only. Tuition fees increase annually for all of the University of Bath's students (with the exception of UK/EU undergraduates, whose fees are set by the UK Government). 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 fees page in December for the following academic year.

Please note that the overseas fees in the hard copy of the 2016 prospectus (page 16) and in the mini prospectus (page 20) contain a misprint. The figures below are correct for 2016 entrants.

Full-time

Programme of study Annual fee
All Management, Humanities and Social Sciences programmes, with the exception of BSc/MSci Sport and Exercise Science and BSc/MSci Physical Activity & Health £14,700
All Science and Engineering programmes, including BSc/MSci Sport and Exercise Science and BSc/MSci Physical Activity & Health £18,500

The Student Finance Office has information about fees charged in previous years along with fees you will be required to pay during any placement period.

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.
