Tuition fees

You can find tuition fees for each of our taught LLM and MSc programmes on the University's degree finder.

LLM and MSc degree fees

Though our programmes do not have any specific additional costs, you should be aware that you may incur other costs related to your studies. These may include books, stationery, trips or other activities. 

Fee status

We charge different rates depending on your fee status, for example 'home' or 'overseas'.

Your tuition fee status is determined by:

  • your nationality
  • the country where you normally live - where you are 'ordinarily resident'
