Scholarships For Birmingham City University

Fees, costs and scholarships

  • Scholarships
  • Planning your finance

Your annual tuition fees cover everyday tuition, examination costs and membership of the Students’ Union. They don’t cover the cost of textbooks and other course materials.

You pay 50 per cent of your fees at enrolment, and can pay the rest in two or six instalments if you have a UK bank account. Fees must be paid in Pounds Sterling.

If we offer you a course place as an overseas (non-UK or EU) student you’ll have to pay the ‘overseas’ tuition fee. Fees differ for overseas students as we do not receive external funding from the UK Government. However, if you can show a relevant connection to the UK or the EU, you may be classed as a ‘home’ student and therefore be exempt from international fees.

Every year we provide a number of scholarships and bursaries recognising the talents of our international students, which can help cover part of your tuition fees.
