Undergraduate tuition fees for UK/EU students
The UK Government has made an announcement giving clarity on fees for EU students. Students from other EU countries applying for places on undergraduate courses in the academic years 2019/20 and 2020/21 will pay the same tuition fees as UK students for the duration of their courses, and can also apply for student loans. This means EU students will have the same fee status as UK students during and after the UK's exit from the European Union.
2019 and 2020 Entry
The maximum fee we are permitted to charge for home/EU students is set by the UK government. We can confirm that for 2019 and 2020 entry to undergraduate courses the tuition fees for home/EU students will be £9,250 a year.
Future inflationary increases may be applied to each subsequent year of your course. This will be subject to government regulations on fee increases, and we will provide you with further information about such increases when this becomes available.
The government regulated tuition fee for UK students in 2021-22 hasn't been set. It may be different from the tuition fee for 2020 and details will be published here as soon as they are available.
The UK government has confirmed that EU students starting their course in 2021 will no longer pay the home rate of fee. Further information on the fee level for EU students starting their course in 2021 will be published as soon as it is made available.
Placement/Sandwich year fees
Please note that the academic year listed relates to your year of entry and not the year you take the placement.
For students commencing their studies from 2017 onwards, a discounted fee of 20% of the normal tuition fee (either at Home/EU or at International level) is payable to Keele University for this year. The discounted fee only applies to situations where the full year is spent on placement. Where only a part of the year is spent on placement the full tuition fee is payable to the Keele University as normal.
How much can I borrow?
If you are an EU or a UK undergraduate student you should be eligible to receive a tuition fee loan up to the value of your tuition fees. You should check whether you are eligible (external link to direct.gov.uk).
If you are applying for a NHS funded course please see student funding for further information.
How do I pay?
Please see the Income Office for information on how to pay.
If you pay your own tuition fees and do not take out a loan you can pay in two instalments, in October and in January each year.
