The following course fees are for students starting their course at the UCO in the 2021-22 academic year. Fees for returning students are available in our Tuition Fee Policy.

 

For all students, fees may increase between academic years throughout the duration of their course. For information on how the UCO sets its fees, see our Tuition Fee Policy. 
 

Government Student Support, ‘Home’ fee status eligibility for EU students and maximum fee limits for Home/UK students

Following the decision by the UK Government to leave the EU, EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals will no longer be eligible for Home fee status, undergraduate and postgraduate financial support from Student Finance England for courses starting in academic year 2021-22.

EU students who start their programme during or before the 2020-21 academic year will be charged the same rate as Home/UK students and will also be able to access the same financial support for the duration of their programme.

There have been no decisions by the UK government on the maximum fee limit for Home/UK students studying in 2021-22. This page will be updated as soon as information is available.
