Course Fees 2017/18

The Government has announced changes to allow undergraduate tuition fees to rise in line with inflation from 2017/18.

The University of Kent intends to increase its regulated full-time tuition fees for all Home and EU undergraduates starting in September 2017 from £9,000 to £9,250. This is subject to us satisfying the Government's Teaching Excellence Framework and the access regulator's requirements. The equivalent part-time fees for these courses will also rise by 2.8%. For further information please visit.

Please consult the appropriate table to find out what the fees will be for your degree. For Brussels courses please refer to the "Brussels" tab below.

Kent is pleased to be able to offer financial support to many of our students - to find out if you are eligible see our Scholarships pages.

PLEASE NOTE: For students continuing on this programme 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.
