Tuition fees for degrees at City are determined by your level of study, fee status (UK, European Union or Overseas) and the course you choose to study.
Undergraduate tuition fees
Tuition fees for undergraduate students from the United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU) are determined by the UK Government. For UK and EU students beginning their studies in 2020, the fee will be £9,250 for each year of study for the duration of studies.
For international students, fees vary from course to course and details can be found on our undergraduate course pages. The institution reserves the right to increase these tuition fees annually in line with the Retail Prices Index (RPI) to take account of the institution's increased costs of delivering educational services. Further information on this where applicable is provided on the course pages.
If you need to apply for a Student Visa to study in the UK, you will need to provide proof that you can pay your tuition fees as part of the application process. Read more about support for international students.
Postgraduate tuition fees
Tuition fees for postgraduate degrees at City vary from course to course and can be found on our postgraduate course pages. Each course page gives details of fees charged if you are a UK, EU or International Student, or if you are planning to study full or part time.
As with undergraduate students, if you need to apply for a Student Visa to study in the UK, you will need to provide proof that you can pay your tuition fees as part of the application process. Read more about support for international students.
Please note that prospective students from the EU, EEA and Switzerland who plan to begin their studies in the UK after August 2021 will no longer be eligible for home fee status, due to the UK’s departure from the EU.
The change will not affect EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals benefitting from Citizens’ Rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement, EEA EFTA Separation Agreement or Swiss Citizens’ Rights Agreement respectively.
Irish nationals living in the UK and Ireland will continue to have right to study and to access benefits and services under the Common Travel Area arrangement between the two nations.
More information can be found on the British Council website.
How to pay
For undergraduate students, if you are an eligible first degree UK or EU student you will not have to pay in advance; the cost will be covered by a loan which you will start to repay once you have left your course and are earning over a certain salary threshold. Read more information about student loans.
Students who do not take out a loan must pay their fees directly to the University. We have an instalment scheme for some students where you pay 50% of the course fee at registration and the remaining 50% at the end of the following January. You can find out more about the instalment scheme and methods of payment accepted by City on our Income Team's pages.
