Undergraduate fees

In this section, you'll find all the information you need to know about fees for undergraduate courses at the University of Sunderland in London, from home and international costs to loans.

Home Fees

Tuition fees for full-time students in 2021/22 and 2022/23 are £9,250 per year for 3 or 4-year undergraduate degrees and top-up degrees.

Fees for full-time students studying foundation degrees are £8,750 for 2021/22 and 2022/23.

UK and EU students can apply for a loan to pay for their tuition fees managed by Student Finance England. The process differs slightly depending on where you're from.

If you intend to pay your fees through Student Finance England, either in part or full, you must inform the University at the time of enrolment. Funding applications need to be made direct to Student Finance England and must be made for each academic year of your course of study.

Once Student Finance England agrees to fund you, they will notify and pay your tuition fees directly to the University.

International Fees

International fees apply to any students who live outside of the United Kingdom (UK), but there are exceptions for students from the Republic of Ireland, or with EU settled/pre-settled status.

Tuition fees are £12,500 for 2021/22 and £13,000 for 2022/23. They are higher because the UK Government subsidises the cost of university tuition for UK students.

Self-funded international students

If you are an international student, you must pay a non-refundable deposit of 50% of your tuition fee before you can receive your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) letter. This deposit becomes the first part of your tuition fee payment.

You should not pay the deposit until you have received your official offer letter from us. The letter will contain your applicant number, which you will need to pay the deposit.

International Undergraduate students

The remaining 50% balance should be paid before enrolment.

Financially sponsored students

A sponsored student is a student whose fees are being paid for by their employer or a government body. Any student being sponsored (e.g. by a company or public sector organisation) needs to provide valid written evidence in the form of a sponsor letter of support for each academic year.

To be valid, a sponsor letter must be on the official sponsor’s letterhead and clearly state the student name, student number and the sponsorship amount. If relatives or personal friends are paying your fees, they are not official sponsors and you will be treated as a self-funded student.

If your sponsor is funding less than the full amount of your tuition fee or withdraws the sponsorship during the financial year for any reason, it is your personal responsibility to settle any outstanding amount.
