Fees and costs

Tuition fees

Tuition fees cover aspects of study such as registration, tuition, supervision and examination. They are paid each year as part of registering on a degree programme.

Your tuition fee will differ depending on the programme you study, and whether you are a home / EU or overseas fee-paying student, and whether you are studying full-time or part-time.

You can find tuition fees for PhD / MPhil and MD(Res) students on our tuition fees webpage. This page is updated each spring, once we have set our tuition fees for the upcoming academic year.

Applicants for clinical PhDs are able to apply for fellowships that pay for tuition fees, research expenses, and a clinical salary – for example, see CRUK-Wellcome Trust Fellowships.

Additional costs

There are no compulsory elements of this course that entail additional costs beyond tuition fees and living costs.

However please note that, depending on your choice of research topic and the research required to complete it, you may incur additional expenses such as conference fees (if you decided to publish and present your work).

If you do not have a fellowship to cover conference costs, you may be able to apply for small grants to help you cover some of these expenses.
