Tuition fees

Home/EU tuition fees 2013-14

King's offers the highest quality research-led teaching and charges home/EU students tuition fees of £9,000 for all undergraduate programmes (for the first year, but may increase in line with inflation in subsequent years).

The Foundation Degree Education Studies fees are £4,500 for the first year, but may increase in line with inflation for following year.

How can I defer paying my tuition fees?

Most* home/EU undergraduate students do not have to pay any tuition fees whilst studying, unless they wish to. Instead, you take a student loan for fees. Repayments start the April after you complete your course and are earning over £21,000.

* important note for previous study students 

If you’d like to understand more about how the new tuition fee/loan arrangements work, visit our ‘Home fees explained' page.
