University of Birmingham Undergraduate Fees and Funding 2017/2018

Tuition fees for undergraduates

Studying at university requires you to pay for your tuition and cover your living expenses. However, financial support is available. Learn more about the loans and grants available from the government and other providers for UK, EU and international students; plus the wide variety of scholarships available at the University.

Home student fees

For students applying for the 2017/18 academic year

For UK students beginning their studies in September 2017, the University of Birmingham will charge the maximum approved tuition fee per year. The fees for your first year of study will therefore be £9,250.

The University will review tuition fees each year. The current expectation is that the University will increase fees for each year of study normally in line with inflation as specified by Parliament. This is likely to be the Retail Price Index (*RPIX) measure of inflation. This means your fees will rise in line with inflation for each year of study.

Student fees loans are also expected to rise in line with the fee cap, to ensure that higher education remains affordable to all.

*RPIX is a measure of inflation in the UK, equivalent to the all items in the Retail Price Index (RPI) excluding mortgage interest payment.

For students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive)

The Home rate of tuition fees for all full-time undergraduate courses for students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive) is set at £9,000 and will remain at this rate for the duration of the programme.

What are the arrangements for Islands students?

Undergraduate students from the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man will in most cases pay the same fee as Home students.  There are two significant exceptions, both of which are due to the different governmental funding arrangements for Islands students:

1 – Islands students on Clinical Medicine or Clinical Dentistry programmes will pay £19,000 per year.
2 – Islands students on placement years will pay 50% of their agreed tuition fee for the placement year.

EU student fees

For students applying for the 2017/18 academic year*

Students applying from other EU countries currently pay the same tuition fee as UK students, and have access to the same Tuition Fee Loan provided by the UK government, which you will not have to start repaying back until after you have graduated and are in work earning over £21,000 per year. If any changes to law affect students from other EU countries, the latest information will be updated here.
