Legal information

These fees are for the academic year 2020/21 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.

If you are an EU undergraduate student starting your studies in or before 2020/21, your fees will be the same as the UK undergraduate fee for the length of your course.

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.
