Undergraduate Tuition Fees

Home students

Home students are students entitled to pay fees at the ‘Home’ rate for higher education study in England. This includes eligible students from EU countries who began their studies before August 2021, or those covered by the EU Withdrawal Agreements.

Please note: On the 23 June 2020 the UK government announced that EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for home fee status for courses starting from the academic year 2021/22.

For the latest guidance see the information published by UKCISA.

If you are not eligible for Home fees you will be liable for the same fees as an international student. You may, however, be eligible for an EU Grant Award from the University which will reduce your tuition fees by £3,000 per year through the course of your studies. For full details see our funding pages.

The UK government caps the annual fee that English universities are permitted to charge UK undergraduate students. Tuition fees are charged annually and may be subject to an annual increase. Information about the current level of tuition fees can be found below.

International students

Students liable to pay fees at the international rates determined by the University.  This includes students from EU countries who began their studies in August 2021 or later and who are not covered by the EU Withdrawal Agreements.

New, international fee paying students starting in the academic year 2021/22 may be able to benefit from financial packages offered by the u​niversity. Further details are available on our funding pages.

Postgraduate Tuition Fees

Postgraduate study improves your employability, enhances your CV and gives you the competitive edge required to stand out from the crowd in a highly competitive graduate employment job market. Some postgraduate degrees can also provide you with the opportunity to change direction and get a head start in your chosen profession. Financial considerations are important when considering your options and planning your next steps. On this page you’ll find all the key information you require to make informed decisions.

Tuition fees for our postgraduate degrees are displayed on each course page or on the tuition fee lists below.

Stay with us and save up to 20% off your tuition fees*

Students who have successfully completed a University of Gloucestershire undergraduate degree in 2020/21 ​and opt to study a postgraduate master’s degree or postgraduate diploma in the academic year 2021/22, will receive a 20% discount off the course tuition fee. Students who completed their undergraduate course in 2019/20 ​or earlier will receive a 10% discount (see note). We are pleased to confirm that this now includes PGCE courses, which have previously been excluded. Please be aware that students in receipt of a NCTL Training Bursary will not be eligible for the discount.

Note: 20% discount refers to all postgraduate diploma or master’s (including master’s by research) programmes excluding graduate diplomas and professional courses.

Postgraduate funding

The majority of students who pursue postgraduate education usually support themselves through student loans, private savings, family support or sponsorship from an​ employer. If you would like to learn more about funding options, our Money Advice team will be happy to help. You can contact them at moneyadvice@glos.ac.uk or call 01242 714535.​

Postgraduate loan scheme

Students applying for taught and masters courses can benefit from a non means-tested loan​. If you’re studying for 2, 3 or 4 academic years, the loan will be divided equally across each year of your course. The loan will be a contribution towards the costs of study and paid directly into your bank account. Whether the loan is used towards fees, maintenance or other costs will be at your own discretion.

How to apply

  • You can apply online.
  • If your application to the University of Gloucestershire has been a little last minute, don’t panic! The application deadline for a one year course is nine months from the first day of your academic year.​
  • All applicants must be final year undergraduate students with pass rate normally expected to progress onto postgraduate study. Students should be ‘self- funding’ and not those who are taking up employment and whose fees may be paid by a company sponsor

Tuition Fee Polic​y​

The University of Gloucestershire’s policies define:

  • Other fees, such as re-examination fees and administrative fees
