Whether you choose to study online or on-campus, the course cost will be the same. This is because both courses offer an equally high-quality experience. Find out more about your options on the online and on-campus study page.

The total tuition fees in the table above cover your induction and all your tuition, including the use of study resources and multimedia facilities at the University of Bristol. The tuition fees are the same for all students, whether UK or international. Tuition fees are subject to increase every year. Increases are decided by the Strategic Pricing Group.

To secure your place on a pre-sessional programme, you will be required to pay your full tuition fee as a deposit. Tuition fees cannot be paid in instalments. Pre-sessional fees are refundable in full within 14 days of original payment. After this period, no refunds will be made for students withdrawing from study.

Accommodation (for on-campus students) and living expenses are not included in the tuition fees.

For more information, please refer to the University’s tuition fee payments page.

Additional costs

You will need to consider various living expenses, which are not included in your fee, before coming to study in Bristol. The University has a comprehensive guide to the cost of living in Bristol.

We will not ask you to print or buy books for your pre-sessional course. We will ask you to submit all your work online.

The course has been helpful for developing my employability. My degree will be in management. It has been very meaningful to learn professional and formal writing skills that will make my articles more logical and cohesive for customers or companies to read.
