Here you can find all of the information on the tuition fees charged here at BGU, so you can be sure you'll know how much your studies with us will cost.

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.

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 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.

The UK government has confirmed that EU nationals starting courses in September 2019 will be charged the same fee as UK students for the duration of their course, irrespective of the timing of the UK’s departure from the EU. EU nationals will also remain eligible for financial support from Student Finance England for the duration of their course, subject to current eligibility rules. Eligible students will be able to borrow the full cost of tuition from the government in the form of a tuition fee loan.

If you already have an SLC student loan, you will continue to receive instalments and should continue your studies as usual. The UK Council for International Student Affairs has published the following advice for students on post-Brexit rules and entitlements. (attached)

Further information can be found at Universities UK.

The following tables show our tuition fees, split by category of programme and study method, for further information please also see our Tuition Fee Register, Charges and Student Debt Policy under the Finance heading of our Policies, Procedures, Regulations & Forms page.
