Postgraduate Research Programmes
Please note that fees are charged by year of entry to the College and not year of study. The fees listed within this section are for students in the 2023-24 academic session. To find the fee for your programme, please choose your faculty from the boxes below.
The Home fees for some postgraduate research programmes are set at the United Kingdom Research and Innovation (UKRI) rate, this is clearly noted on the relevant fee tables; these fees will increase annually by an amount linked to inflation (currently, the measure is the GDP deflator), this includes students returning from an interruption of studies. Fees for subsequent years of study may be higher than the fees listed here. [The fees shown here are provisional based on the expected value of the UKRI fee and are shown for illustrative purposes only, the actual fee to be charged will be confirmed once UKRI announce the indicative fee] [UKRI have confirmed their indicative fee for 2023-24 will be £4,712.00]. For more information on UKRI fees, please see the UKRI website.
The fees for all other continuing postgraduate research students will increase annually by the average percentage change in the CPI from the April of the preceding year to the March of the calendar year in which the session commences unless otherwise indicated, this includes students returning from an interruption of studies. Due to the exceptional inflationary pressure currently being faced by the United Kingdom, the College has reduced the maximum inflationary increase for 2023-24 from 10.0% to 8.0% rounded to the nearest £50.00. Continuing student fees are also capped at the new-entrant fee for that session and so may increase by less than the maximum amount.
Students that commenced their studies prior to 1 September 2022 were charged their first year’s fees pro rata a nominal progression date of 1 October (students that commenced during September were charged based on a nominal progression of 1 October of the following year). Continuing fees for these students will be charged on or around 1 October each year. Students that commenced their studies on or after 1 September 2022 are charged their first year’s fees in full when they commence their studies. Continuing fees for these students will be charged on or around the anniversary of their commencement date.
