Tuition fees 2016

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

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 2016/17 only. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

UK and EU undergraduate fees are regulated by the government and are liable to increase annually.

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 will be set out on our fee pages in December for the following academic year.

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.
