Fees & finance

Investing in your future

Going to university is probably one of the biggest investments you’ll make and the expense can seem daunting. It’s important that you’re aware of all the costs involved, as well as understand what grants, loans and other financial support you’re entitled to while you’re studying with us.

Funding for EU students

Current EU students and those starting in the 2017-18 or 2018-19 academic year will not be affected by the result of the EU Referendum, and will still have access to student loans. Even if their course finishes after the UK’s exit from the EU (‘Brexit’), EU students enrolling at UCA in 2018 will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, master’s postgraduate and advanced learner financial support.

EU students on the Erasmus programme in the UK, and UK students on the Erasmus programme in Europe, will continue to be eligible for the Erasmus grant at least as long as we remain a member of the EU, and potentially beyond t

Tuition fees for previous years

We review our tuition fees and fee regulations each academic year. See the tuition fee schedules for previous years.

Tuition fees for part-time students

If you choose to study part time, your fees are calculated per 10 credits of study you complete. This means that the amount you pay will depend on the intensity of your study.

See the relevant tuition fee schedule for more information about part-time fees for each year of entry.

Paying your fees

Most students don’t have to pay their fees up front. In most cases, you can get a tuition-fee loan from the government through the Student Loans Company to cover these costs. And, if you apply successfully to the Student Loan Company, they’ll pay your fees directly to us, making the whole transaction really easy.

If you prefer, you can pay your fees directly to us before your course starts.

To pay your tuition fees you must first complete our online enrolment process. You can then make your payment using our online payment systems.
