The fees below relate to students registering for the 2020/21 academic year. These may be increased by up to 5 per cent each academic year.

The academic year is split into two half-year study sessions, each containing 20 weeks of learning. In advance of each study session, you will select and pay for the courses you wish to study. You can register for a maximum of two full courses per study session.

We encourage students to study and examine at least three full courses per academic year.

Other costs may include the following:

  • Textbook fees: You may also need to budget for textbooks (which could extend to around £300 per year).
  • Exam centre fees: Your tuition includes the University examination entry fee; however, you will be required to pay an examination centre fee directly to the venue each time you sit an exam.
  • Examination resit fees:If you need to resit a course, you must pay a resit fee. The current resit fee for full courses is £302.

Please note: All student fees shown are net of any local VAT, Goods and Services Tax (GST) or any other sales tax payable by the student in their country of residence. Where the University is required to add VAT, GST or any other sales tax at the local statutory rate, this will be added to the fees shown during the payment process. For students resident in the UK, our fees are exempt from VAT.

Funding and Financial Support Options

There are various ways to fund your undergraduate degree programme. We encourage all students to explore the resources available to them, including:

  • employer benefits
  • scholarships
  • education loans
  • private education loans.

Employer Benefits

If you are interested in employer sponsorship options, please have your employer provide you with a purchase order or a signed and authorized letter on company-headed paper outlining the total fees they will pay in sterling pounds.

Your employer will receive an invoice from the University for the amount specified. The purchase order number can be specified on the invoice by request. When you register for your programme, please upload the document your employer has provided, select “Payment by Sponsor” and specify either an amount or percentage of the programme fee your employer sponsor will pay.

Any fees not covered by employer sponsorship will be charged to you. If you withdraw from the programme, your sponsor will still be responsible for any outstanding fees they had previously agreed to pay on your behalf.


Scholarship opportunities are limited and very competitive. If you plan to apply for a related award, we recommend applying as early as possible.

You may only be eligible for certain scholarships if you have secured an offer to study from the University of London. In cases where an offer is not required, holding an offer to study can often benefit a funding application.

Education Loans

If you are studying towards your first undergraduate degree, you can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover your registration fees.

Maintenance loans are not available for this programme. Generally, you will only receive a student loan if this is your first higher education qualification, even if your previous course was self-funded.

Country-Specific Qualifications

Loan availability is country dependent. Students who qualify for assistance as residents of the UK may qualify for a loan to assist with tuition payment. Limited funding is available to help with living expenses.

If you are a UK resident, you can apply for support through your country’s aid office:

If you are a US citizen or eligible non-citizen, you do not qualify for federal student aid or military education benefits for these programmes due to the online format.

If you are from an EU country, you may be eligible for a tuition fee loan and help with living costs. Use the student finance calculator to learn more.

When to Apply

You may apply for UK funding up to nine months after the first day of the academic year of your course. You do not need a confirmed place in the programme to apply.

In the UK, it can take up to six weeks to secure confirmation. You may have to provide additional evidence to secure loan funding.

Private Education Loans

Private education loans, also known as alternative loans, are offered by private lenders to help students bridge the gap between the cost of education and the available funds to cover tuition costs.
