University of Brighton Scholarships for International Students
International undergraduate fees
Students from countries outside the EU pay international tuition fees for degree courses at UK universities. The fees that you pay as an international student depend on the type of course you study.
If you come from a country outside the EU/EEU and Switzerland you will usually be classified as an international student, unless you have lived in the UK or EU for at least three years before the start date of your course, for purposes other than education, and have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
We may need to confirm your fee status during the application process. We judge all cases against the same criteria, in accordance with the government’s guidelines.
Tuition fees for 2017 entry
|Course type||Fees per year|
|Non-classroom (laboratory/workshop-based) courses||£13,920|
|Medicine||See BSMS website|
Some courses charge different fees and you should confirm the tuition fee for the course you are applying for by using our course finder.
Fees for international students at partner colleges
Fees for international students studying at the university’s partner colleges are set by the colleges, not the university. You should therefore contact your partner college for information on course fees.
Paying your international tuition fee deposit
If you are a self-funded international student, after you have applied and been offered a place on a course you will need to pay a deposit of £2,500 before we can issue you with a your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. You need a CAS number in order to make your visa application.
If you are starting a course with us in September 2017, you must provide us with your tuition fee deposit of £2,500 by 31 August 2017.
You don’t need to pay the tuition fee deposit if:
- you are a University of Brighton alumnus
- you are a University of Brighton International College alumnus
- you have funding from a highly Tier 4 sponsor (eg government, international scholarship agency etc)
- you are applying after 31 July.
Paying the rest of your tuition fees
Tuition fees are payable from the first day of your course. You can pay them online or by bank transfer, and can choose to pay your fees in up to six instalments.
If you are paying your own fees, you can apply for an early settlement discount provided that you pay your fees in full by 1 November.
If you are not paying your own fees, you must produce a letter when you arrive at the university confirming that your fees will be paid by your government, the British Council, an international organisation, your employer or another sponsor. We cannot complete your enrolment until we have seen this letter.

How to pay your fees
What is included in the fees?
Mandatory requirements for your course are covered by the tuition fees. These include things such as health or criminal record checks, specialist materials and mandatory field trips.
Optional field trips, accommodation and course materials are not included in the tuition fees and you will need to pay for these yourself. Please contact the school that delivers your course about possible extra costs before you apply.
