Fees and funding

A qualification from LSBU is an ideal investment for your future

An undergraduate, postgraduate or professional qualification from a UK university will give you an internationally recognised qualification that will either be a solid foundation for your career or give your job prospects a boost.

Tuition fees

These fees cover the cost of your learning experience at LSBU. If you are paying your tuition fees yourself, payment must be made when you enrol onto your course. If a sponsor is paying your fees then you need a letter of confirmation that your fees will be paid.

Each entry in our Course Finder comes with details of the fees international students will pay. Fees for the 2019/20 academic year are given in the Course Finder.

International students are expected to have sufficient funds to maintain themselves and pay their tuition fees in line with the Home Office Tier 4 policy requirements. Student fees and financial support for international students differ considerably from that offered to students defined as Home or EU. It is important to determine whether or not you are classed as a Home or EU student.

For further enquiries regarding fees, contact our International Office.

Possible fee changes

The University reserves the right to increase its fees in line with changes to legislation, regulation and any government guidance or decisions.

The fees for international students are reviewed annually and the University reserves the right to increase the tuition fees in line with the RPIX measure of inflation up to 4 per cent.

Field trips

Some courses include compulsory field trips or residential visits and the cost of these is added to your total tuition fee. In addition, some optional units include field trips or residentials for which you will be asked to pay separately.

International student status

Tuition fees and the range of financial support available will differ depending on whether you are defined as Home (usually resident in the UK), European Union (EU) or Overseas (International) student. Help with understanding your assessment can be found on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website.

Additional information and advice about fees and funding for refugees and asylum seekers who are academics is provided by CARA, the Council for Assisting Refugee Academics.

LSBU participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct Loans). This is the main US Federal funding available to US students in the UK. For detailed information visit the US Loans section on MyLSBU.
