Fees, Funding and Scholarships

Fees

Tuition fees cover all elements of your tuition, registration and examination. If applicable, any additional research expenses will be specified on your formal offer of admission. Full details of the tuition fees for each academic year can be found under the Fee schedule pages of the UCL Current Students website.

The published fees are only for the first year of study and the fees in subsequent years may increase to reflect UCL's increased costs in delivering the programme, such as operational costs, market forces and inflation: any increase in fees for subsequent years of the programme won't exceed 5% per year. You should make provision for such increases and this is implicit in accepting the offer of a place at UCL.

You must pay at least a third of your tuition fee before or at enrolment to be fully enrolled, or provide a letter of sponsorship indicating who should be invoiced for your fee.

UCL’s tuition fee for UK students registered on the LLM programme at UCL Laws for 2023-24 is £21,200 for full-time students and £10,600 for part-time students.

International Students

UCL’s tuition fee for international students registered on the LLM programme at UCL Laws for 2023-24 is £32,100 for full-time students and £16,050 for part-time students.

Further information relating to tuition fees for all students can be found in the Money section of the UCL Current Students website.

If you have any specific questions about tuition fees, please email fees@ucl.ac.uk.

Living costs

As well as your tuition fees, you will also need to think about how you are going to meet your living costs – accommodation, food and travel, as well as other costs associated with your studies and everyday life.

Find more information about living costs and managing your money on the UCL Prospective Students website.

Government Funding 

The British government offers funding for postgraduate study through loans, studentships, bursaries and grants. Visit the government website for further information.
