Tuition fees

Good to know

  • Home and EU students don’t have to pay tuition fees upfront, as they can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government
  • These loans don’t have to be paid back until students have left university and are earning over the repayment threshold

The level of tuition fees your son or daughter will be charged is based on their fee status, which is assessed in line with UK government legislation.

Home/EU students

The undergraduate tuition fee for Home students who started at Imperial in 2016 is £9,000per year. For 2017, it will be £9,250 per year. You should expect the fee to increase for each year that your son or daughter’s course lasts, subject to UK government regulations on fee increases.

But don’t worry, this money doesn’t have to be paid upfront – your son/daughter will be able to apply for a non-means tested Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government (see below).

We expect EU students will continue to pay the Home rate of tuition as long as the UK remains in the EU, and for the duration of their course, provided this remains lawful.

For information on how the EU Referendum result might affect EU students, please see our dedicated webpage.

Overseas students

Overseas student fees vary per course – see our course pages for details.

Students from outside the EU are not eligible for a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government. However, we encourage your son or daughter to contact their Ministry of Education or British Council education advisor for information on what funding may be available towards their tuition fees.

For more information on tuition fees, please visit our Fees and Funding webpages.

Extra costs

Some of our degrees may involve extra costs that are not covered by tuition fees, for example protective clothing (like a lab coat) that may be required for practical work, printing costs, books and field trips. Please see our course pages for details of costs that may apply to your son/daughter’s chosen course.

How do the Tuition Fee Loans work?

Tuition Fee Loans are available for Home students to pay their university tuition fees. The money is paid directly to your child’s university through the Student Loans Company. Your son/daughter will need to apply for a loan for each year of study.
