Fees, Scholarships and Part-Time Employment

For information about fees, scholarships and part-time employment, see:


It is a condition of entry that all graduate students must satisfy the University that they have adequate funds to support themselves throughout their periods of study. The University requires students to supply a satisfactory financial guarantee before admission to confirm that they have adequate funds to cover both tuition, and maintenance fees.

Tuition fees include charges for tuition, examination and registration and a contribution towards the cost of membership of the Student Union. Tuition fees are subject to annual review and, accordingly, are liable to rise in each year of a student's programme of study. They are expected to rise broadly in line with inflation. Students from Member States of the European Union are charged fees at the 'home' student rate. If you are in doubt as to your fee status, consult the University's fees pages.

Tuition fees may be paid in one or two instalments. Payment may be made by cheque, direct debit or credit card.

For further details about fees, and the cost of living in Bristol see the University's fees pages.
