Tuition fees and what they cover
The fees for 2021 entry to MSc Economics & Strategy for Business are the same for both UK and international students.
You can either pay your tuition fees in one instalment at the start of term or in two instalments, one at the start of term and then one in February.
If you choose to pay in two instalments there will be a 2% surcharge of the total amount added to your first instalment. You will be asked to select a payment schedule during the offer acceptance process. Please contact the Student Finance Team if you have further questions about this process.
Please note: students requiring a Tier 4 visa may opt to pay their fees by instalments, but this does not exempt them from the requirement to show evidence of funds to cover living expenses plus the full tuition fees for their MSc programme. Evidence of these funds must be shown in either the student’s or their parents’ bank account for a minimum of 28 days on a statement dated not more than 31 days prior to the visa application date. If the first instalment has been paid and shows as paid on the CAS, the visa applicant still needs to have the remaining tuition fees plus recommended living costs saved in a bank account for at least 28 days.
If you are made an offer for a place on the programme, you will be asked to pay a deposit of 10% of the tuition fee in order to secure your place. This is part of the total fees and not an additional cost. The tuition fees team will email your deposit invoice within five working days of you accepting your offer. This will then need to be paid within 30 days of receiving the invoice. Your offer may be withdrawn if you fail to pay the deposit on time. Apart from in certain circumstances, deposits are not refundable if you fail to take up your place on the programme. You can find out if you qualify for a refund and the process for requesting a refund on the College’s postgraduate deposit information page.
