The tables below list all tuition fees for new students in the 2020–2021 academic session, the fees for continuing students will be published as soon as the relevant inflationary measures have been released. Please note that fees are charged by year of entry to the College and not year of study. To find your fee, please select your research field and then check the fee for your year of entry.

UK Research and Innovation have not confirmed their indicative fee for 2020-21, this fee increases annually by an amount linked to inflation (currently, the measure used is the GDP deflator); fees for subsequent years of study may be higher than the fees listed here.  All fees shown in italics are provisional pending the release of the UKRI indicative fee in the Spring of 2020.  Imperial College London reserves the right to amend these fees following the release of the indicative fee by the UKRI. For more information on the UK Research and Innovation indicative fees please see the UKRI website

Students undertaking research on a part-time basis will be charged half the relevant full-time fee.
