Tuition Fees

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

UK/EU International
BSc (Hons) Part-time £2,050 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.
