Tuition Fees for International Students

The information provided here is relevant for students who do not qualify for UK or European Union (EU) status.

Our international student tuition fees are competitive and the cost of living in Manchester is lower than in London and many other large cities.

Manchester Metropolitan University’s tuition fees remain the same for each year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, unless the University increases tuition fees due to inflation. This, combined with Manchester’s low cost of living, is an important consideration when comparing total study costs with other universities.

2018/2019 Standard Course Tuition Fees for International Students

Undergraduate
Students who do not qualify for UK or EU status will normally pay between £13,500 and £15,000.

Postgraduate Taught

Some courses may have additional costs, for example, field trips, equipment, materials and professional or statutory body registration fees. These costs will be provided through the admissions process.

Postgraduate Research Students

Tuition fees for postgraduate research courses, including PhD, MPhil, MRes and Masters by Research, are categorised into five tuition fee bands. The tuition fee is determined by the resources required for an applicant’s research project. Applicants will be informed of their tuition fee band when they receive an offer to study at the University.

International students who are studying on a Tier 4 student visa must be studying full-time under immigration rules. However, if you are an EU, EEA or Swiss national, or if you are in the UK under a different visa category, it may be possible for you to study part-time. Learn more about immigration rules for part-time research.

Home/Overseas Tuition Fee Status

Tuition fees for Home (UK) and EU students are set at different levels to tuition fees for international students.

We can only decide a student’s tuition fee status after we receive a completed application form. We will then automatically inform all students who will need to pay international tuition fees.

To decide the tuition fee status of each applicant, Manchester Metropolitan University uses the UK government Department for Business, Innovation and Skills guidelines in accordance with the Education (Fees and Awards) Regulations 1997.
