Tuition fees for students studying at Undergraduate level in the UK can sometimes vary depending on the course and university.
Fees for students from European Union countries have changed since 2012. In line with the New UK government guidelines, UK Universities can charge any fee from £6,000 to £9,000 per year for the whole period of their bachelors degree.
Some more traditional UK universities have decided to charge the maximum but many others charge less.
Postgraduate tuition fees also vary depending on the course and university as well as whether the student is an EU or an International.
For more specific details please visit universities websites as figures are subject to change without notice.
England, Wales and Northern Ireland
- The UK Government’s Student Loan Company can pay the tuition fees on behalf of the student in the form of a Student Finance Loan. The Student Finance Loan is available to all EU students including Cypriots
- Students repay the loan only if they are in employment and are earning more than GBP £21,000 per year
- There is no repayment if the student is earning less than GBP £21,000 per year
- The repayment is 9% per year on the amount over GBP £21,000
- Tuition fees in Scotland can be paid by SAAS (Student Awards Agency for Scotland)
- All EU and Scottish students are entitled to have their fees paid by SAAS
- UK citizens from England, Wales and Ireland are excluded
- Dual passport holders for example, an English student that also hold a German passport, ‘must have exercised their right of residence elsewhere in the EEA to be entitled’.
- The Welsh government offers a Non – Repayable fee grant of £5,425 to all EU students that study in Wales
- Fee grant is deducted from the student’s whole tuition fees. For example if the tuition fees are £9,000 the £5,425 will be deducted from that.
- Balance can be paid by the Student Loan Company through a Student Finance Loan so the student’s loan balance will only be £3,575
Cypriot Private Universities
Each private university in Cyprus has its own method of fee payment. The majority of them request a substantial deposit at the beginning of each term which ranges from 10-20% of each year’s tuition fees. So if the fees are €8,000 for the year, the university will be paid anything between €1000 and €2000 in September and another similar amount the following January. The balance is usually paid in set monthly installments between the two (2) terms.
This takes place for the whole four (4) years of study.
