Postgraduate tuition fees

Postgraduate tuition fees

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.

At Royal Holloway, we wish to support a transition for students affected by this change in status.

For eligible EU students starting their course with us in the academic year 2022/23 (including courses with a January 2023 start date), we will award an EU Fee Reduction Scholarship equivalent to 60% of the difference between the UK (Home) and International fee for your course.

If you start a course with us during the academic year 2023/24, that figure will be 30%. This will apply for the duration of your course. Find out if you are eligible, and more information.

You can find the fee details for courses starting in 2023 on our course finder.

Alumni discounts

Royal Holloway alumni who continue their studies with us at postgraduate level can automatically receive a 15% tuition fee discount.

Royal Holloway alumni who enrol on one of our Health Studies postgraduate courses are automatically given a 20% tuition fee discount for their first year. 

We also offer a 10% tuition fee discount if you graduated with an undergraduate degree from one of many of the University of London universities (exemptions apply, please check individual scholarships pages below and scholarships terms and conditions for more information).

Instalment plans

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
