Northumbria University Tuition Fees 2017

2017/18 Entry Tuition Fees for Full-time UK & EU Applicants

Undergraduate fees are set by Government in line with forecast inflation. The fee for your first year of study (2017/18) will be £9,250, the maximum chargeable fee. This represents a 2.8% increase in fees from 2016/17, based on the Retail Price Index (RPI)*.

For both Home and EU undergraduate students, tuition fees are dependent on UK Government policy and approvals.  You should expect to pay tuition fees for every year in attendance, and be aware these will increase annually.  On the basis of current Government policy any increase will not exceed the increase in inflation by reference to RPI*.

Student fee loans have risen in line with the fee cap.

More information and an application form can be found on the Student Finance England website. You can apply now and should return your application to Student Finance England as soon as possible to ensure your finance is in place for the start of the course. After your application has been processed by Student Finance England they will send you a Student Finance Entitlement letter with your customer reference number (CRN), which you should quote whenever you contact them. Student Finance England will pay your tuition fees direct to your university.

Foundation year students will be charged £9,250.

EU students starting a Northumbria University degree programme in 2017/18 academic year will be charged the same tuition fees as UK students for the duration of their studies at the University.

To help you manage your finances, there is a range of support packages available in the form of bursaries and scholarships.
