This page is updated each spring, once we have set our tuition fees for the upcoming academic year. The fees shown are of most relevance to self-financing students. Fees for previous years are shown toward the bottom of the page.
Fees for the 2021/22 academic year
Our full tuition fees are shown below, and should be read in conjunction with the 'Further information' section that follows.
Research degree students
Full-time students studying for the degrees of PhD, MPhil, or MD(Res) will pay the following tuition fees:
* For part-time fees, see the 'Reduction in fees' section below.
† For students starting courses on or after 1 August 2021, EU students – other than those from the Republic of Ireland – will no longer be eligible to pay home fees. See 'Classification', below.
The vast majority of our science PhD students competitively win fully-funded studentships, which cover all elements of their tuition fees and experimental running costs, and also provide a tax-free stipend for living expenses. Where a student instead applies with their own funding in place, a bench fee may be charged to cover the cost of experiments. The amount of this bench fee would be made clear before any offer was made.
Applicants for clinical PhDs are able to apply for fellowships that pay for tuition fees, research expenses, and a clinical salary.
Taught course students
Students on our MSc in Oncology degree programme will pay the following fees:
Affiliate research degree students pay the same fee as home/EU students who are registered with the ICR.
The affiliate fee for LCA trainees is currently £100. This status permits access to selected information resources for those ST6/ST7 clinical oncology trainees in the London and Kent, Surrey & Sussex training programmes who are not currently registered ICR students.
