Tuition fees

2017 fees

Home/EU students

For UK and EU students starting a new full-time degree in 2017 at the University of Exeter the fee is £9,000. This figure is subject to final approval by OFFA and may be subject to small increments set by the Government each year.

Do I have to pay upfront, and what will the repayments be like?

You will not have to pay for the cost of your tuition up front. You can take out a tuition loan which you don’t have to start repaying until you are earning more than £21,000 a year. Repayment rates on loans will be at 9% of salary over £21,000. The government will meet the cost of writing off any remaining debt after 30 years.

Can I get assistance paying for the fees?

At the University of Exeter we are committed to attracting and supporting the most talented students to the University, irrespective of your financial background. As part of these arrangements, we will be offering financial assistance in the form of reduced fees and bursaries to encourage more applications from less well off students. We also provide expert financial advice and guidance to offer the best practical help and support possible to ensure you are able to make the most of your time at Exeter. Find out more about financial support.
