How much will my course cost?

The cost of postgraduate study at Strathclyde depends on the course you’re on, your level of study and where you permanently live.

To determine your fee status we’ll use the information you provided in your application. We’ll decide if you should be classed as “Home” or “Overseas” for fee purposes.

If we’re unable to determine your fee status from the information in your application, we’ll send you a Fee Assessment Form. You should complete the form and return it to us as soon as possible. You’ll be classed as “Overseas” until we receive your completed Fee Assessment Form and are able to re-assess your status.

For further information, see the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) webpages.

Tuition fees

To find out the fees for each course please go to the appropriate course page or our tuition fees section. Tuition fees may be subject to an increase each year.

Your tuition fees

As part of your application you’re required to tell us how you intend to fund your study.

If you have secured sponsorship, you should upload a letter from your sponsor which confirms the amount they will pay.

Self-funded students are required to pay full tuition fees at (or before) the time of registration or set up a formal instalment plan, the first instalment being due at the time of registration. For full information on instalment plans, please see the Finance Office webpages.

Advance payment of fees can speed up the progress of registration. For all payment options and methods of payment (including online) please see the Finance Office website.

Course deposits

For certain courses you’ll need to pay a deposit to secure your offer of a place.

If you’re a sponsored applicant you need to provide a letter from your sponsor which:

  • shows how much will be paid for tuition fees and living costs
  • shows how long you’ll be sponsored
  • Is on headed paper with appropriate signature

If you’re a self-funded applicant who is required to a pay a deposit you can do this using one of these methods:
