Course Fees

UCR fees will be charged at an annual rate which will remain stable for the duration of a students course. Each payment is for a single academic year only and for 2022/23 the fees are £6,900 full-time and no more than £4,400 for part-time.

This is much lower than the usual £9,000 per year charged by other universities.

HE fees may be covered via a student loan from Student Finance England and learners should look into this in more detail at
