Cheapest University in England for international students
The UK universities charging the lowest tuition fees to international students in 2016-17 have been revealed in a survey of postgraduate and undergraduate courses by TheCompleteUniversityGuide.
Although the cost of university varies across different subjects and is partially dependent on whether the course is classroom, laboratory or clinically based, the results published by Times Higher Education show the cheapest universities in the UK averaged for each type of course.
For undergraduate degrees based in a classroom, international students will pay at least £9,500 – the average annual cost of studying at the cheapest option: Bucks New University.
But the price range is wider for international postgraduates on taught degrees. The Royal Veterinary College offers taught degrees for just under £9,000, and at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, a taught degree will set an international student back anywhere between £5,724 and £19,890.
The full results of the tuition fee survey also compare the cost for UK and European Union students studying on classroom, laboratory, clinical and MBA courses.
Below are the tuition fees for a non-EU international student on a classroom-based undergraduate or postgraduate degree.
