Undergraduate fees & funding
While obtaining a degree certainly comes at a cost, statistics show that graduates often have better career options and salaries than non-graduates.
The fees for students starting on Undergraduate courses in EECS in 2016 are:
- Home (UK and EU) students: £9,000
- International (the rest of the world): £17,500.
Please also refer to the College Student Finance pages for the most up to date information about fees, grants and bursarys.
For Home students there is funding available through the Student Loans Company. The arrangements for repaying your tuition fee and maintenance loans have been designed to make higher education as affordable as possible. You will not have to start repaying your loans until the April after you graduate and are earning at least £21,000 a year.
Income-related repayments will be deducted automatically from your earnings through the tax system.
