£9,000 but no up-front fees - tuition fee loan repayments start when you earn over £25,725 a year.
There will be no mandatory additional costs to study beyond the payment of tuition. Students should be prepared to incur the basic costs associated with study such as transport, and may wish to purchase coffees, snacks or other sundry items on campus.
Many students also choose to invest in study support tools such as laptops over the course of their study, though this is not a programme requirement. Any activities related to study or student life which bear a cost beyond tuition will be optional, and the expense shall be clearly communicated to students at the time of registration.
Currently this course is open to UK and EU students, and any international students not on Tier 4 visas
