Study at City

Fees

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 United Kingdom (UK) and European Union (EU) students are determined by the UK Government. For UK and EU students beginning their study in 2017, the first year fee was £9,250. Fees for 2018 have not yet been confirmed. However City, University of London can confirm that for EU students beginning their study in 2018, fees will remain the same as UK resident fees for the duration of their course irrespective of any subsequent changes in government policy.

Fees in each subsequent year of study may be subject to an annual increase limited to the Student Fees Inflation Index as determined by the UK Government’s Office for Budget Responsibility, but this is subject to confirmation. The index is derived from the All Items Retail Prices Index. If fees do increase in each subsequent year of study, we will confirm any change to the annual tuition fee to you in writing prior to you commencing each subsequent year of study.

For international students, fees may vary from course to course and details can be found on our undergraduate course pages. Fees in each subsequent year of study may also be subject to annual increase, as detailed above for UK and EU students, but again this is subject to confirmation. 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.

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.

Payment methods

If you are an eligible first degree UK or EU student you will not have to pay in advance for undergraduate study; 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. For students beginning their study in 2017 this threshold was £21,000 per year. Recent announcements by the UK Government have indicated this figure may be subject to review for students beginning their study in 2018. 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. Find out more about the instalment scheme and methods of payment accepted by City.
