Tuition fees

The total tuition fees in the table above cover all tuition and use of study resources and multimedia facilities at the University of Bristol. The tuition fees are the same for all students: UK residents, EU residents and overseas fee-paying residents. Tuition fees are subject to increase every year. Increases are decided by the Strategic Pricing Group.

The International Foundation Programme is a level 3 course on the Regulated Qualifications Framework. Students are therefore not eligible for funding from the UK Student Loans Company for the International Foundation Programme tuition fees.

Accommodation and living expenses are not included in the tuition fees.

For more information regarding tuition fees, please refer to the University’s tuition fee payments page.


The deposit is non-transferable and non-refundable except under specific circumstances.

It is not possible to pay your tuition fees and accommodation fees together. Please make these payments separately.


The centre will provide all of the materials for your language units electronically. Students will be required to bring a laptop or tablet to class so that you can access the electronic materials on your device. We ask you to submit all of your work online. It is, therefore, your choice if you want to print your materials.

The cost of printing at the University of Bristol can be seen on the print credits page
