Course fees

In 2012, the Government introduced financial arrangements which led to the withdrawal of most of the public funding for higher education.

Fees at Worcester reflect the cost of efficiently providing an excellent education. Our philosophy is that once a student is selected to study here, they become a member of our community. This informs everything we do.

At Worcester, we are committed to providing our future students with an outstanding education, facilities and opportunities.

The University remains committed to providing more opportunities for highly talented, ambitious students regardless of their financial circumstances.

Tuition fees are reviewed annually and undergraduate tuition fees 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 2021/22 and 2022/23 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.
