How much will it cost?


Living costs in Northampton are lower than many other UK cities, making student life more affordable. While living in the UK, you will need to budget for your living costs: accommodation, food, clothing, travel, books and your social life. These expenses are in addition to your tuition fees, which you will need to have before you start your studies with us.


Tuition Fees


Your tuition fees for individual courses may vary; please visit the international students section of the University of Northampton website for the most up-to-date information. The website also contains information on tuition fee rates for EU students. Details of when and how to pay your fees will be sent to you once you have confirmed your place with us.

International scholarship scheme


At the University of Northampton, we work hard to ensure our courses offer both high quality and good value for money. We are committed to providing opportunities for all students with the ability to study with us, and we are keen to reward the best and brightest applicants. With this in mind, we offer a generous scholarship scheme which provides merit-based financial support for non-EU international students. The International Scholarship Scheme can reduce your tuition fees by up to 25 per cent and all on-campus courses are included in the scheme. Full details can be found in the International Students section of our website: www.northampton.ac.uk


Other sources of funding for international students


The majority of students who come to the UK for their postgraduate studies support themselves through private means, usually from a combination of savings, loans and family support. Some international students seek assistance via scholarships provided by their home country, the UK Government, international organisations, employers or charitable trusts. Competition for these funds is fierce. For help and guidance on further sources of funding, please contact your local British Council office or visit the British Council website: www.britishcouncil.org or visit the UK Council for International Student Affairs website at www.ukcisa.org.uk


Part-time work


International students who come to study on a full-time programme in the UK for more than six months are allowed to work part-time during their studies. Your Tier 4 Student Visa will permit you to work for up to 20 hours per week during the academic year and full-time during university vacations.


Working part-time is a great way for you to gain valuable skills while earning extra money. The University provides a ‘Job Shop’, based in our Student Centre, which helps students find suitable work they can fit around their studies.
