The tuition fee for the International Foundation Programme for Dentistry for 2024/25 is £26,200.
This fee does not include accommodation, meals or other living expenses. Find out about what living expenses you can expect to find.
If you are self-funded, you must make a deposit of £2000 before you arrive. To make payment, you will need your student number which you will receive with your offer.
You can pay this deposit online on our secure deposits page using a credit or debit card.
You can also pay through our PaytoStudy account. PaytoStudy is an international payment solution which offers competitive exchange rates. Where PaytoStudy has a local bank account, wire fee charges are removed, and you will be able to pay in your local currency to a local bank account.
The deposit is non-transferable and non-refundable. There are, however, some exceptions.
You may pay your deposit before meeting the conditions of your offer. If you then fail to meet the conditions and rejected from the course on academic grounds, you will receive a refund.
Other exceptions to the non-refundable rule can be found in our International Deposit Refund Policy.
