Tuition fees whilst studying abroad

King's students studying abroad at a partner institution are not charged tuition fees by the host university (although some partners do charge a small administration cost for applying) and can expect to pay just for their travel, accommodation and other course-related costs such as field trips, books etc. 

King's will reduce the tuition fees owed for those undergraduate students who study abroad for a semester or year at an exchange partner university. King’s will continue to invoice students or their relevant funding body for King's tuition fees at the appropriate fee level depending on the kind of mobility, as following:

  • Home students studying for a semester abroad will receive an invoice for £6,000 for King’s tuition fees for the year.

  • Home students studying or working for a full academic year abroad will receive an invoice for £1,350 for King’s tuition fees for the year.

  • Overseas students studying for a semester abroad will receive an invoice for two thirds of the King's tuition fees for the year.

  • Overseas students studying or working for a full academic year abroad will receive an invoice for one third of the King's tuition fees for the year.

Information for MA European Studies Students

  • Postgraduate students on the MA European Studies who choose to study abroad for the second semester at Science Po, Paris or the Humboldt in Berlin do not pay tuition fees to the host university. Instead, they will be required to pay King's full fee for the Masters.

Information for Dickson Poon School of Law Students

  • Students on one of the Dickson Poon School of Law's dual LLBs with either Colombia University, the Université Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas or the Humboldt in Berlin have alternative fee arrangements. Information on these can be sought from the Law School direct.

Information for American students in receipt of United States Federal Aid

  • American nationals in receipt of United States Federal Aid must be aware that due to Federal Student Aid regulations, they will not be able to use Federal Aid for a course that includes studying abroad for a semester/full year in the USA, or any another foreign school that is not approved for Federal Aid. Federal Aid funded students wishing to study abroad should check with the Student Funding Office to see whether their study abroad options will make them ineligible for Federal Aid.
