All postgraduate taught courses have an annual fee. You’ll also need to take into account your living costs. Tuition fees cover all academic-related costs, such as teaching and supervision, use of the library and computing facilities, examinations and administration.
The amount you pay depends on whether you're a UK resident, or live outside the UK.
The UK Government has confirmed that EU students will not be eligible to pay the same fees as UK students, nor be eligible for funding from the Student Loans Company. This means you are classified as an international student.
EU students starting their course with us during the academic year 2024/5 will pay the same fee as international students. You can find the fee details for courses starting in 2024 on our course finder.
Royal Holloway graduates who apply for a postgraduate course automatically receive a 15% discount on tuition fees for the first year of study. There is no need to apply.
If you’re paying tuition fees yourself and are not applying for support and loans for fees via Student Finance England or Student Finance Services, you can opt to pay your fees in two equal instalments.
You need to pay at least 50% of the fee by enrolment in the first term. The second payment is then required during the first week of the second term, in January.
If you have an approved postgraduate loan you can pay in instalments that match your loan payments. For more information see our postgraduate information on Student Finance
