Tuition fees and funding

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?

Our fees for 2016/17 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 start 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 start 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

Fees are charged for each year of study and are due at the start of the academic year. If you receive a government tuition fee loan, this is paid directly to the University.

An instalment plan is available, but if you pay the full year's fee before 31 August, you are granted an early payment discount of 2%. Undergraduates who pay for their entire degree by 31 August have the fees frozen at the start of the course and receive a 5% discount on the total cost.

Fees can be paid by a variety of methods, including online at See the Student Finance website for further information regarding payment of fees.
