Please note: The amount you pay is dependent on your fee status. For more information please refer to the University's fee status pages.
Applicants receiving an offer of admission, either conditional or unconditional, will be asked to pay a deposit of £1,500 within 28 days of the offer to secure their place on the programme.
Please note: If the deposit has not been received by the deadline, the application will be withdrawn without further notice. It is therefore essential that applicants have funding for their deposit in place before applying. The deposit will be offset against the tuition fee payable at the time of matriculation.View the Deposit Payment Guide View the Deposit Policy Guidelines
