Understanding your tuition fees

You pay tuition fees at the beginning of each year. The fee rates depend on your fee status, not your mode of study.

Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

You should also budget for extra costs in addition to your tuition fees.

Fees for Home, EU and Island students

If you are an EU undergraduate student and started your studies in or before 2020/21, your fees will be the same as the UK undergraduate fee for the length of your course.

UK undergraduate fees are regulated by the government. Tuition fees are liable to increase annually for all University of Bath students.

If you aren't paying your fees in British pounds, you should also budget for possible fluctuations in your own currency.
