Tuition Fees

The tuition fees quoted are for 2018 entry.

Tuition fees is an area than often causes people a great deal of concern, particularly around how they will be able to afford to study a degree and pay for tuition fees on their chosen programme. It is important to remember that the majority of UK or EU students beginning a degree course with us in 2018 will not have to pay tuition fees up front. The full cost of our tuition fees can be covered by a tuition fee loan, which you will not repay until after you leave your course and are earning over £21,000.

Eligibility for tuition fee loans can depend on a number of factors such as where you have been living during the past 3-5 years and applicants should seek advice from Study Finance England via if they are unsure as to whether or not they will be eligible for a tuition fee loan.

Tuition fees for 2018 entry are £9,250 at both campuses for Home and EU students. The fees for International students are £13,500. For further information on our tuition fees, email or call our Student Recruitment & Admissions Office on 03332417333.

Cost of living

It is important to keep in mind that studying in higher education can be expensive, particularly when you are living away from home and paying for your own rent and food. Many students are eligible to receive a maintenance loan from Student Finance England, the student finance calculator at can help you to get a better idea of how much money you could expect to receive in your first year of study.

In addition to student finance, UCFB also offers means tested bursaries to students who meet our eligibility criteria with awards of up to £3,500 in London or £1,500 in Manchester to help with the cost of accommodation or travel. These awards can be extended into your second and third year of study and many students find that this helps considerably with their cost of living. You can find more information on this here.

Additional costs may be incurred during the time of study. Please visit each individual programme page for an example of what these costs might be.

Our Student Services also offer assistance to current students through hardship loans and budgeting support to help you when you need a little extra assistance from us.
