IFP Fees and Scholarships
Tuition fees for the International Foundation Programme
Fees for IFP for the 2019/20 academic year are £9,250 for EU students and £15,700 for international students*.
Please note that no Student Loans Company (SLC) funding is available for students intending to study on the IFP (September or February start), as this is a one year stand-alone programme. Undergraduate degree programmes following on from the IFP will be eligible for SLC funding.
Accommodation fees for the International Foundation Programme
You can apply for different types of accommodation from our Accommodation office. This ranges from flats to houses, with shared facilities or en-suite bathrooms and self-catering or catered options.
Autumn IFP students can apply for any of the undergraduate accommodation options (see our accommodation website) and should expect to pay between £4,500 and £7,300 for the full year from 14 September 2019 to 13 June 2020.
Spring IFP students can apply for a number of the undergraduate accommodation options (see our accommodation website) from arrival until 15 June 2019; however, all students will move to Darwin College on 15 June until 13 July 2019. In total students should expect to pay between £2,800 and £3,950 for accommodation for the total period of 28 January to 13 July 2019.
