When deciding to join a university, we know that one of the first things you think about is your budget, the cost of tuition fees and how to fund your time at the university.

The University of Worcester wants to help our students as much as we can by keeping our tuition fees as low as possible and by giving you additional support through our scholarship schemes.

Tuition fees are reviewed annually and usually increase in line with inflation.

EU students

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students starting their course after August 2021 will no longer pay the home rate for fees or be eligible for undergraduate, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support from Student Finance England. However, at the University of Worcester we have decided that (with the exception of the Medicine MBChB), during this period of transition, EU students starting their studies in the academic years 2023/24 and 2024/25 will continue to be eligible for the home rate of fees.

The changes confirmed by the UK Government will not affect Irish nationals, EU students who have settled or pre-settled status, or EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals benefitting from Citizens’ Rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement, EEA EFTA Separation Agreement or Swiss Citizens’ Rights Agreement respectively.
