Fees & Finance

Home students

UCL’s tuition fees for 2024 entry are set at £9,250 per year for UK students for all undergraduate programmes. Tuition fees for 2025 entry may be higher.

You are not required to pay up-front fees. You can apply to the Student Loans Company for a Tuition Fee Loan and your fees will be paid directly to UCL on your behalf.

Please visit our UCL Scholarships and funding website for more comprehensive information on Student Finance.

International students

For 2024 entry, UCL’s tuition fees (per year) for overseas undergraduate students applying to the LLB Law programme (M100) are £31,100 per year. Tuition fees for our other undergraduate programmes are £28,100 for 2024 entry.

Our UCL Global Scholarships programme provides financial support for international students to attend UCL.

Additional costs

In addition to your tuition costs, you will also have to pay for other course related items like books (if you choose to buy your own copies, which most students do); society membership fees; stationery; travel costs and graduation costs. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Key information on tuition fees, additional expenses and funding can be found on the Fees and Funding page of our online prospectus.

The most up to date information on the tuition fees at UCL can be found in the Fees Schedule pages in the UCL Current Students website. Select the Fee Schedule for the required year to find out what you will be expected to pay for your tuition for that academic session.

If you enrol onto one of our undergraduate programmes with a year abroad in Europe (LLB Law with French Law, LLB Law with German Law and LLB Law with Hispanic Law), you will have a different fee structure to students on the LLB Law degree programme. For the years where you are based at UCL (years one, two and four), normal UCL fees will apply. During your year abroad, you will pay a reduced rate to UCL, and no fees at all to the host institution, but may be required to pay registration fees.

Students who successfully transfer onto LLB Law with Another Legal System (Australia or Singapore) in their second year of the LLB Law programme will also pay a reduced fee rate for their year abroad.

If you are studying on our dual degree programmes, LLB English and German Law with the Universität zu Köln, the dual degree with HKU and the LLB Law/J.D., you will be required to pay tuition fees to UCL for the first two years of the programme (when you will be based at UCL). During the final two years of your degree programme, the overseas institution will set your tuition fees and you will pay your fees directly to them.
