FEES & FUNDING
Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most undergraduate modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 2016/17 on this course is £1500 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £75. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
See further information on financing your studies or information about whether you may qualify for one of our Bursaries and Scholarships.
