Tuition Fees

Annual tuition fees for entry in the academic year 2018/19 are as follows:

UK/EU International
GradCert Part-time N/A N/A

Important Information for 2018/19: The Welsh Government has recently issued a statement (July 2017) outlining intentions to increase the maximum tuition fee in 2018/19 for full-time undergraduate degree programmes in line with inflation. This may mean the maximum tuition fee for 2018/19 could be set to increase from £9,000 to £9,295 per annum. If the Welsh Government passes this update to The Higher Education (Amounts) (Wales) Regulations 2015 later in the year, the University will apply to the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) to increase its maximum fee level to £9,295 subject to satisfactory approval of a variation to the 2018/19 Fee & Access plan. If approved by HEFCW, the University will immediately write to all students affected notifying them of this fee increase as soon as is practically possible.

Fees for full time Undergraduate UK/EU students may be increased in subsequent years of study by an inflationary amount determined by Welsh Government.

Fees for full time Undergraduate International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.

You can find further information on fees and how to pay on our tuition fees page.

Speak Out Safely

The College of Human and Health Sciences supports the Nursing Times Speak Out Safely campaign. This means we want every member of our staff and students to feel able to raise concerns about wrongdoing or poor practice when they see it and confident that their concerns will be addressed in a constructive way.

 

Speak out safely

 

We promise that where staff or students identify a genuine patient safety concern, we will support them, help them to ensure their concern is fully investigated and, if appropriate, act on their concern. We will also give them feedback about how service providers have responded to the issue they have raised, as soon as possible.

Whether you are a staff member, or a student, please speak up when you feel something is wrong. We want you to be able to Speak Out Safely.
