• Undergraduate
    course fees

  • Choosing to study at university is a big decision. There’s a lot to consider: the course, the location, the fees and how they can be paid. The University of Law is a private institution and as such we differ slightly from other universities.

    We offer our LLB (Hons) courses over a two, three or four-year duration, to allow our students to choose the route that suits them most.

    The University of Law also charges different tuition fees depending on your residency classification within the UK. Decisions on the fee status of an individual applicant will be made based on the information provided to UCAS at the time of you application and will be confirmed when a student is offered a place on the course.

    For courses starting in September 2016 we are in the process of finalising the course fees and they will be published soon. In the meantime, please refer to the fees stated below as a guide. 

    More details on the definitions being used to classify each student.

      Please note that by paying via instalments, the first instalment is required to be paid prior to the start of the course, in your year of entry.

      If you accept a place at the University of Law and then decide you do not wish to take up this place you will need to request the cancellation in writing to the admissions department before the 20 September in order not to be liable for the first instalment of tuition fees. 

      Student Support/Funding your course

      If you are classed as an UK or EU national and resident, you may be able to apply to the UK government for support to assist with covering the costs of this course, subject to meeting the individual eligibility requirements. More information on the support that is available can be found in the funding section.  Find out more

      If you are successful in securing a UK government fee loan, any payment would be made for fees would be made directly to the University of Law in three instalments throughout the course. As we are a private institution, the maximum fee loan that can be awarded to study a full time degree here with us is £6000 per year and £4500 per year for the new part-time degree course.

      Students looking to study on the 2 year accelerated LLB course will incur fees costs that are higher than the maximum support available from the UK government. As such these students will be responsible for paying at least £3,000 of the fees yourselves. Students will be asked to pay this amount in two equal instalments of £1,500 each due on the 20 September 2015 and again on the 1 January 2016. Students should note however that this accelerated version of the degree will save you money overall as you will not need to fund a third years of living costs.

      If you have secured a UK government loan, in order for the University to receive tuition fee payments from the Student Loans Company (SLC), you must provide us with a copy of your University and College Payment Advice letter at registration. If you are unable to provide this notice from the SLC at registration, you will be responsible for paying the full tuition until the university has seen evidence of your support entitlement.

      Students who require a visa to study in the UK

      Students who will require a tier 4 visa to enter the UK to study will need to pay 25% of the total course fee in the first instalment, £5,750 for the 2 year courses and £7,125 for the 3 year courses. This is in order to meet the requirements of the visa application. However fees for year 2 and 3 will be split equally over the whole year.

      For students who require a tier 4 visa, the initial fee payment must be made before any Confirmation of Accepted Studies (CAS) letter can be issued to apply for a visa. Therefore it is strongly recommended that a student requiring a visa pays the initial fee at least 4 weeks before the course starts to allow for any visa application to be processed.

      The new Part Time LLB will have a set fee for 2015 entry that will not be affected by a students’ residency status within the UK. However we can confirm that The University of Law is unable to sponsor a part time student for the Tier 4 visa; as such any student wishing to study part time will already need to be able to enter the UK without the need for a student visa.

      Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS)  
      If you need to be sponsored under Tier 4 of the points-based system, the University must issue you with a CAS before you can apply for your visa. You must have paid at least the first instalment of your Year 1 course fees before the University can issue this to you. 

    • Course fees

      How you will be required to pay the tuition fees will depend on your residency or funding status.

      How to pay your course fees

      The course fee pays for tuition, text books, course materials and learning resources. Course fees exclude examination resits which will be charged for separately.

      Please note that there is no need to contact the University to check whether your payment has been received as there are automatic processes to acknowledge both payment and outstanding payment.

      When and how much should I pay?

      Fees can be paid either in full or by instalments. Please refer to the University's  finance terms and conditions for details of payment deadlines.

      If any part of your fees is being paid by the Student Loans Company, you will need to bring a copy of your University Payment letter with you to registration so The University of Law can arrange for the correct fees to be collected directly from the SLC.

      The maximum funding you can receive from the Student Loans Company towards tuition is £6,000 per annum for a full time course or £4,500 for a part time course as we are a private institution. If you will be attending the 2 year Law course you will therefore be personally liable for the remaining £3,000 fee per annum.
