Tuition Fees

Tuition fee increases:                                       All tuition fees will usually be subject to annual increases, subject to the maximum fee chargeable according to the tuition fee cap set by OFFA. BGU reserves the right to review its fees for students continuing to study a programme during 2017-18 and beyond within the limits set by OFFA. The tuition fee will not usually remain the same for each year of study unless it is limited by the fee cap, e.g. if the fee cap were to increase by £500, tuition fees may increase by an amount equivalent to or less than £500.  

Since 2012 institutions such as BGU no longer receive direct funding from the Government. Instead, universities are required to charge students tuition fees, with individual institutions setting fees of varying levels, up to an agreed yearly maximum.

The following tables show our tuition fees, split by category of programme, study method and year of entry.

The fees for September 2017 entry are shown highlighted in lilac, with fees for students whose courses started in previous years given below (for returning or existing students).
