UCL's annual tuition fee covers all elements of tuition (except any field courses you might have to take), registration and examinations although optional courses taken elsewhere in the University of London may attract an additional fee.
Fees for residential accommodation are charged separately.
Please note: UCL policy is to charge one rate of tuition fee to those classified as liable for UK tuition fees regardless of whether a student is studying for an equivalent or lower level qualification than they have already achieved.
Further information about tuition fees can be found on the Current Students website.
The level of fee charged will depend upon whether you are what is termed a UK, EU, Overseas or Islands student. It is likely that you will already know in which category you fall but this will be confirmed if you are offered a place at UCL. Each student's tuition fee classification is determined in accordance with the 2007 Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations (SI No. 779) and subsequent amendments and is based upon information that you have provided on your application.
To be eligible for UK/EU fees you must normally be a national of an EU country and have been ordinarily resident within the European Economic Area (EEA) throughout the three years immediately preceding the start of your programme. Alternatively, you must have permanent residency rights in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man during the same period. In both instances, absences in connection with temporary employment are permitted. Students whose residence in the EEA or the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man has been primarily for full-time educational purposes are ineligible to pay fees at the UK/EU rate.
A number of additional categories of student are eligible to pay fees at the UK/EU rate. If you wish to ascertain in advance of submitting your application whether you fall into the Overseas fee category you are invited to write to the relevant Faculty Office for advice.
Further details on how tuition fee status is determined can be found at www.ucl.ac.uk/current-students/money/fees-support/fee_status_proc
If more information is required by UCL to help us classify you for fee purposes this will be sought when the offer of a place is issued. If you think UCL's fee classification is wrong, you should query the decision immediately by contacting the relevant Faculty Tutor. If you wish to seek advice about your possible fee classification in advance of submitting your application, you are invited to write to the relevant Faculty Office. However, UCL will be unable to make a definitive assessment of your fee status until a decision has been made on your degree programme application.

Study Abroad students
For a year

UK/EU students who study abroad for a full year under the Erasmus programme currently pay no fees to either UCL or to the host institution.
For a term
Students who take part in Study Abroad for one term only will pay the regular fee to UCL, and no additional fee to the host institution
Paying your tuition fee
You will be sent further details about paying your tuition fee when your place has been confirmed through UCAS and you are due to enrol.
Tuition fee loans - UK/EU
If you are a UK/EU student, you will not have to pay your fees yourself, but will need to provide evidence that you are receiving a tuition fee loan.
If you are an Overseas student, you or your family must pay the fee or, if appropriate, provide a sponsorship letter indicating who should be invoiced for the fees.
When to pay
Tuition fees must be paid annually before or at enrolment. If you are a UK, EU or Overseas student paying your tuition fee direct to UCL yourself (so not by means of a tuition fee loan or some other form of sponsorship), you may pay a minimum of 50% of your fee at enrolment with the remainder due on or before 1 February.
More details on how to pay your tuition fee can be found on UCL's Current Students website.
