Postgraduate tuition fees

Kent endeavours to keep fees competitive to allow as many students as possible to benefit from postgraduate study.

What are the fees for my course?

The 2016/17 postgraduate tuition fees have not yet been set. As a guide only, our fees for 2015/16 entry can be found on our individual course pages. Simply follow the steps below:

Yearly fee increases

For students continuing on their courses, fees will increase year on year by no more than RPI + 3% in each academic year of study except where regulated. Where fees are regulated (such as by the Department of Business Innovation and Skills or Research Council UK) they will be increased by an amount up to the permitted increase.

Fee paying categories

UK or European Union fee status depends on your nationality and residency. In general, students paying the UK or EU fee should have 'settled status' under UK immigration regulations prior to the star t of their course, or students holding full European Union nationality should have been resident in the European Economic Area for non-educational purposes for three years prior to the star t of their course. The UK/EU category also includes EU students with indefinite leave to remain in the UK.If you are uncertain about your fee status please contact

Payment of tuition fees

There are two main ways of paying:

  • In full – this qualifies for a 2% discount if cleared funds are received in full by 31 August 2015. The discount can be deducted from the payment
  • In two instalments – 50% on or before registration and 50% by 1 December 2015. The instalment plan needs to be set up online at

See the Student Finance website for further information regarding payment of fees.
