2021/22 Postgraduate Tuition Fees

Open the tabs below for a full breakdown of Tuition fees

The UK and Welsh Governments have confirmed that European Union (EU) students commencing their studies in the academic year 2021/22 will no longer be eligible for home fee status. Fees for EU students will therefore be charged in line with international fees from 2021/22 onwards.

We are delighted to provide our international students with the Aberystwyth Inclusive Accommodation Offer, meaning the cost of your housing is included in your tuition fees. For more information on this please see Inclusive Accommodation.  In addition, your fees will remain the same for the duration of your course.

Please note if you are an EU student and started your course in 2020/21 or earlier, you will continue to pay the same fees as home students for the duration of your course and existing rules around financial support and home fees will still apply.
