University of Birmingham Tuition Fees
Tuition fees for undergraduates
Studying at a UK university means you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, graduation, and membership of the students’ union (at Birmingham this is called the Guild of Students).
The fee you have to pay and the support available will depend on whether you are considered a Home, EU or an International student.
How much is the University of Birmingham tuition fee?
For students applying for the 2017/18 academic year
For UK students beginning their studies in September 2017, the University of Birmingham will charge the maximum approved tuition fee per year. The fees for your first year of study will therefore be £9,250.
The University will review tuition fees each year. The current expectation is that the University will increase fees for each year of study normally in line with inflation as specified by Parliament. This is likely to be the Retail Price Index (*RPIX) measure of inflation. This means your fees will rise in line with inflation for each year of study.
Student fees loans are also expected to rise in line with the fee cap, to ensure that higher education remains affordable to all.
*RPIX is a measure of inflation in the UK, equivalent to the all items in the Retail Price Index (RPI) excluding mortgage interest payment.
For students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive)
The Home rate of tuition fees for all full-time undergraduate courses for students admitted between the 2012/2013 and 2016/2017 academic years (inclusive) is set at £9,000 and will remain at this rate for the duration of the programme.
What support is available to help me pay my tuition fee?
Tuition Fee Loans are offered by the government via the Student Loans Company (SLC) to all Home undergraduate students, giving you the opportunity to borrow any amount up to the full cost of your tuition fees.
