Fee incentive

We have placed a limit on annual price increases for continuing students to help them budget for the entire period of their course. This incentive is applicable to all UK and EU students who enrolled on an undergraduate or postgraduate course which started in the 2009-2010 academic year or later.

Each year, fees for students who return to continue their studies on the same programme as the previous year will not increase by more than the rate of inflation plus 3%, for the duration of the programme. The rate of inflation will be the published rate at the time the fees are reviewed and set for the following academic year.
