How much will my studies cost?

The cost of studying at the University of Exeter will depend on the level of your study, the course you are taking, whether you are studying full-time or part-time, and what your fee status is. When applying, you should carefully review the fees and funding information on your course webpage to make sure you understand the cost and funding options for your programme of study. You can search for this information through the ‘study’ section of the University’s website.

For a home (UK) student taking a full-time undergraduate degree, each year of study will usually cost £9,250. For most students in this position, funding to cover these costs will be available from Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales or a similar funding body. These pages contain more information about your entitlement to such funding and what you need to do to access it.

Different arrangements for fees and funding apply to international students, students taking postgraduate degrees, and students whose study is funded by the National Health Service (NHS).

Living costs

As well as the costs of your degree, you will need to cover your living costs while you are studying at the University.  Please note that the rising cost of living in the UK has made coming to university increasingly expensive. It is important to think carefully about whether you can afford to pay for university as once you arrive you can find yourself in debt trying to keep up with your living costs and there are serious consequences if you cannot pay your course fees.

Save the Student publishes some data here on average student living costs per month. The British Council publishes some information on living costs to expect for internation students here.

However, be mindful with all data from surveys it is an average of a large group of people and based on people reporting their own costs so it may not be relevant to your specific financial needs. Also, expenses such as rent in Exeter are considerably higher than national average rent prices.  

The other finance advice pages on this website include key information about this, including budgeting, support available to specific groups of students, and other advice and sources of help for students facing financial difficulties.
