These fees are for new students starting in the 2022/23 academic year only. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

If you started your course before 2022, find the tuition fees you need to pay this academic year.

Once you have started your studies, 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.

If you defer your entry, you will pay the fees for the year that you start your course and these may be more than 5% higher than the previous year.

If you're an EU national, with effect from September 2021, your fee status may be Home or Overseas, depending on your circumstances.
