How much will my course cost?

Your tuition fees are based on these factors:

  • Which level your course is – whether it is a pre-sessional, foundation, undergraduate or postgraduate course
  • The cost can also depend on which course you want to study. For example, some of our postgraduate courses vary in price. We recommend that you check the fees for your specific course by using our Course Finder
  • Your tuition fee status, which will differ based on whether you are an EU or Non-EU International student

The table below contains general tuition fee costs for Non-EU international students starting a course in September 2021 and January 2022. If you are an EU student, please visit our EU Finance page to view your fees and funding information.

Funding your course

There are ways you may be able to fund your course. Sometimes it is possible to get sponsorship from a government body in your country. There are many different options, so have a look through the links carefully to see if they apply to you. 

 

Paying your course fees

  1. Pay a minimum of 50% of your first-year tuition fees to Leeds Beckett University,

    or 

    send a copy of your official sponsor letter to cas@leedsbeckett.ac.uk Sponsored students are usually sponsored by a government, employer or another official organisation. You are not a sponsored student if a family member or friend is providing you with financial assistance.

  2. Pay the remainder of your course fees within three months of starting your course.
