Tuition fees

For full information about UEA's Tuition Fees for each course, please refer to our Information about Tuition Fees and Charges. Here you will find the most up to date information about Tuition Fees, and be able to complete a Fee Status form to help determine which category of fee you should pay if you are unsure about your eligibility for Home, EU or International status.

Notice on Annual Fee Increases

Fees for continuing students (i.e. those on courses of greater than one year in length) will normally increase annually. This increase will not exceed 4% or the % increase of the UK Government regulated fee whichever is higher.

If students choose to defer entry then the initial tuition fee will be that which applies to their actual first year of registration and you should note that this may be more than 4% higher than for the original year of entry.

Impact of EU Referendum Outcome 

UEA is proud of its global outlook and is a welcoming and supportive place to study and work for people of all nationalities. Our campus is a vibrant and diverse community and you will mix with students from all over the world.

We welcome applications from students across all countries in Europe. However, we appreciate that the situation may not be clear to prospective students from EU member states following the referendum vote for the UK to withdraw from the EU. To help we have provided some advice and guidance.
