Higher Education

Tuition fees are charged by universities and colleges to cover key elements of your course and academic life, as well as core services related to students’ wellbeing and experience on campus. 

Tuition fees normally cover:

  • lectures, seminars, and tutorials
  • course admin costs
  • access to course-related facilities and equipment (e.g. laboratories, studios) 
  • access to campus libraries and computer rooms
  • support services for students
  • student union membership
  • field trips essential for completion of your course (travel and accommodation only)
  • graduation ceremony

However, tuition fees won’t usually cover:

  • printing or photocopying at libraries or IT facilities
  • non-compulsory field trips
  • textbooks and other course materials, e.g. art supplies, dancewear
  • personal technology, e.g. laptop, tablet, specialist software, camera, and accessories
  • membership to union clubs and societies
  • travel costs to work placements
  • professional body membership
  • living costs e.g. accommodation, travel
  • graduation attire, photography, and guest tickets

If you’re unsure if something is covered by your tuition fees – or if you’ll have to pay for it, ask your university or college. 

Tuition fees can vary quite a bit – even for similar courses. You can see exactly how much they are by searching for a course, but you can get an approximate idea from the table below.
