Fees and funding
Studying for higher education is a big decision – especially if you’re looking to do it in another country.
To help, we’ve collated the main things to bear in mind about our fees and funding so you can get your finances in good order.
If you are coming here from outside the EU:
You will need to pay overseas tuition fees for your course.
If you are coming here from within the EU:
You should pay the same fees as UK students provided that you are a holder of a EU passport. You will find course fees on our individual course pages . If you are from an EU country, you may be able to get a tuition fee loan; visit gov.uk for more information.
If you are studying at postgraduate level:
EU students may be able to apply for a postgraduate loan from the Government. If you have been living in the UK for at least three years before your course starts, you may also qualify for a professional and career development loan; visit gov.uk for more information and eligibility criteria.
Both EU and international students can also potentially get funding for their studies through sponsorship from an employer. This could be an option open to you if your work is happy to sponsor a course that’s relevant to your role or the sector you work in.
It's also worth contacting companies, charities or professional societies about sponsorship if you know you’ll be working on research as part of your course that might be relevant to them. Many students find financial support for postgraduate studies this way.
Scholarships and bursaries
We offer some scholarships and bursaries for overseas students, to help with the costs of studying in the UK. Check your country page to see if any are open to you and how to apply for them. You can also contact Student Finance to find out how you can get funding for your studies based on your individual circumstances
