Academic Fees and Financial Support

We want to ensure that, wherever possible, financial circumstances do not become a barrier to studying at Warwick. Details of tuition fee and maintenance support for 2016-17 are yet to be announced and will be published shortly.

Undergraduate Funding for Home/EU students

  • Our tuition fees for home and EU undergraduate students in 2015-16 are £9,000 a year (£6,750 for those applying for a 2+2 degree). However, you don’t have to pay anything upfront, as you can apply for a loan to cover the full cost of your course fees.Students undertaking a Foundation Year within Warwick Business School in 2015 will be charged £6,750 (£9,000 a year for subsequent years).
  • Students studying for their first higher education qualification can apply for a tuition fee loan for each year of their course.
  • UK students can apply for living cost loans to help with expenses such as rent, food and books.
  • Students from lower income families may receive a non-repayable living cost grant.
  • Loans are repaid once you have a job and are earning more than £21,000 a year.

Student Funding Explained

Financial support available

Tuition fee loans

Home students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the full cost of your fees. Currently, this loan is repaid gradually once you are working and earning over £21,000 a year. Repayments are affordable, with a graduate earning £24,000 a year paying around £22 a month. If your income stops or falls below the £21,000 threshold, your repayments will stop until you are back in work again and earning over £21,000.

Extra support from Warwick

We provide extra financial support for qualifying students from lower income families (see table below for 2015–16 figures).

Family income Warwick bursary
£0 - £16,000 £2,000
£16,001 - £25,000 £1,500
£25,001 - £35,000 £1,000

Scholarships and Bursaries

The Warwick Bursary is an annual payment to help with the costs of studying and is paid directly into your bank account for each year of your course. Find out more about our scholarships and bursaries.

International Students

For new international students, a limited number of scholarships may be available, and further information can be obtained from the International Office website. You may also be eligible for financial help from your own governments, from the British Council or from other funding agencies. Information on scholarships can usually be obtained from the Ministry of Education in the student’s own country, or from the local British Council office.

It is very important that you do not travel to the University or to the UK until you have been formally notified that you will be admitted to Warwick and you are certain that you have sufficient funds to pay for all of your academic fees and all of your living expenses. All offers of a place at the University are made on the understanding that you will be able to meet all these costs in full.
