2019 / 2020 Fees and scholarships: UK and EU applicants
The annual tuition fee for this course is £6,500 for students from the UK / EU. If you are a University of Sunderland graduate, you will receive a £1,000 alumni discount on your tuition fee.
2019 / 2020 Fees and scholarships: International applicants
The annual tuition fee for this course is £13,000. However, all international students applying in 2019 or 2020 are eligible for a £1,500 scholarship. This means that the total tuition fee you will pay is £11,500 each year.
Additional tuition fee discount for international students: All courses require you to pay 50% of the total tuition fee as a deposit. However, if you pay 100% of your tuition fee prior to CAS issuance, you will receive an extra £1,000 discount on your tuition fee. This would reduce the total annual cost of this course to £10,500.
If you do not wish to pay all of your tuition fees at once, you can choose to pay the remaining 50% up to three months after the start date. If you choose to pay in this way, you will not receive any extra discount, and the total annual cost of this course will be £11,500.
If you are a University of Sunderland graduate, you will receive a £1,000 alumni discount on your tuition fee.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL)
If you feel you already know some of the topics covered in this course, either due to previous learning or from experience of work, then you may not need to study all of the course.
Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) is the name given to the process of gaining credit towards a qualification because of something you have learnt in the past. If you are eligible for APL you won't have to learn the same topic again, and so you can be exempt from a module, set of modules or year of a course.
