Tuition fees

Tuition fees vary for different courses and are subject to revision each year. Always check fees with the faculty or admissions office to which you are applying.

All fees are listed on the postgraduate courses themselves and are for the first year of a course only - if your course continues into subsequent years, the fees for those years may differ. Please run a search for your chosen course of interest and click to the 'Fees & funding' section of the entry for all fee details and funding opportunities for that particular course.

Most courses last more than a single year and it is therefore likely that tuition fees for your course will increase annually, reflecting the changes in costs of delivering your course and any changes in government policy or regulation. In such cases, King’s reserves the right to increase fees annually to recognise these changes. You should expect fees to increase by at least 3% on the previous academic year’s tuition fee for the course in question. This may mean that any tuition fee increases apply to self-funding overseas fees status students, but not to home/EU fee status students, where those fees are subject to a cap imposed by regulatory requirements. Where such increases are necessary, King's will publish the new fees on its website not less than 3 months’ notice before the start of the academic year to which the fee increase is intended to apply. 

Please note that any annual increase in tuition fees will not exceed 5%. This does mean that students entering the second, or later years of study may be charged fees which increase in each year of study. However, unless the increase is required to comply with legislation or regulatory requirements, such a fee increase shall not exceed a 5% increase on the previous academic year’s tuition fee for the course in question.

Where a student has to interrupt their study due to a) financial difficulty, b) serious health matters, or c) serious personal issues, the cap on fee increases will also apply to them for breaks of one year. Fee arrangements for longer breaks in study will be determined on a case by case basis.

Note for students from the European Union

The tuition fees for EU-domiciled students are not likely to be affected over the next few years as the UK negotiates its exit from the EU. Postgraduate taught fees have already been published for 2018/19 and remain unchanged for this coming academic year.

Further ahead we don’t yet know as it depends on Government legislation. However, we will work with higher education sector bodies to influence future Government policy where we can.

You will be able to find regular updates on this webpage, or on our main EU Referendum page. If you would like to speak to someone at King’s, please get in touch with us on 020 7836 5454.
