These fees are for the 2024/25 academic year only. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

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 your fee status may be Home or Overseas, depending on your circumstances.

Distance learning taught courses

Advanced Programmes in Pharmaceutical Practice and Therapeutics (AP3T)

These courses were developed for NHS pharmacists and are not open to students based overseas.

Course fees are based on the costs for individual units and can be combined in different ways to achieve named awards. The final fee for an award will depend on the combination of units taken in any given year.

The 2024/25 fees for these courses will be confirmed in Spring 2024. See last year’s fees.
