The educational system in the UK can be very flexible when it comes to tuition and finances. However these vary and each university can be different in terms of what they offer. Try approaching the university you are interested in and ask if there are any scholarships you can apply for that might aid in your study. Additionally some universities may have offshore campuses that may be closer or even in your hope country offering UK tuition bands. Alternatively some universities offer distance and online learning courses, again these can vary between universities. To get all the information it is recommended to request the prospectus of the university you are interested in.

Here are the typical figures as provided by UCAS in regards to what sort of figures you are looking at in terms of tuition fees. In comparison to the amount you may have to spend in other countries, coming to the UK may prove more cost effective in the long run.

Whatever type of course it is, whether academic, performing arts or teaching training these are the maximum tuition fees you have to pay each year. Some course providers charge less, but many charge the full amount. Check course provider websites. For EU applicants maximum tuition fees vary by country, some course providers charge less than the full amount. For Non EU students you will need to check the fees as these may differ between different providers.

Here is a break for the “typical” expenses a student will have to face when living and studying in the UK: 

  • Tuition fee loan (up to £9,000 depending on the cost of your course for England and Wales – £8,354 for our ‘average’ student)

  • Up to £3,575 per year in Northern Ireland.

  • Maintenance grant (up to £3,250 depending on your household income – £934 for the ‘average’ student)

  • Loan for living costs away from home (depending on a number of factors, up to £7,675 for London – our ‘average’ student gets £7,208; or up to £5,500 for the rest of England – our ‘average’ student gets £4,335)

  • Loan for long courses (depending on a number of factors including the length of your course – for a 39 week course, £954 for London or £747 for the rest of England)

Financial support:

If you are an EU applicant you might be able to apply for financial help with your undergraduate tuition fees and living costs. Check the student finance website for the UK region you want to study in to see if you qualify for funding.
