Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees
The table below lists the annual tuition fees that were charged to new students entering the first year of an undergraduate degree or a one-year taught postgraduate course, most recently for those entering in September/October 2013. Note that these are tuition fees only for the full academic year and do not include accommodation, living costs or travel costs, etc. The fees information for this university is an extract from the Reddin Fees Survey – a survey of UK university tuition fees. See the full table listing all universities participating in the survey.
Fees for UK nationals with UK residence (home students) and EU nationals with EU residence (EU students) are the same, whereas fees for other overseas students are typically differentiated by course, usually in two bands: one for arts/classroom based courses and the other, typically higher, for science/laboratory based courses (fees for medicine and dentistry are generally much higher). Universities in Scotland and Northern Ireland may charge a different fee for RUK (rest of the UK) students.
Postgraduate course fees do not necessarily fit neatly in fee bands and further enquiry should be made to a university (or its website) for the exact fees for a particular course.
|Year||UK and EU Students||Overseas – Classroom||Overseas – Laboratory|

|* College Fees (which do not apply to home/EU undergraduates) vary between Colleges (£3300 - £4400pa in 2007/8; I have used an 'average' fee of £3850 in these calculations; all PG fees cited include a Graduate level College Fee of £2043 (this was the max graduate College Fee applied in 2006/7);|
|* UGOS and all PG fees attract a further College Fee: Fitwilliam College cite College Fees of £3990 for undergrduates and £2043 for graduates for 2006/7 and thes figures have been added in to the fees stated. So, UGOS1 - £8832 + £3990 = £12822, UGOS2 - £11571 + £3990 = £15661; PGHEU - £3168 + £2043 = £5211, PGOS1 - £8832 + £2043 = £10875, PGOS2 - £11571 + £2043 = £13614; MBA - £28000 + £2000 = £30000|
