Tuition Fees in Northern Ireland

Study in Northern Ireland: Tuition Fees

EU students are required to pay the same fees as (local) Northern Irish students. Tuition fees are capped at £4,160 per year with 76% of institutions charging the full amount. 

International students (non-EU/EEA nationals) pay the same international fees across the whole UK. These fees are higher than those for local and EU students. 

In general, an undergraduate degree in the humanities or social sciences can range from £10,000 to £17,000, a science or engineering degree from £10,000 to £20,000, and clinical degrees up to £38,000. 

Fees can fluctuate to even higher levels, and tuition fees for graduate and postgraduate degrees also vary, depending on your institution and program of study. 

While UK tuition costs are higher than elsewhere in the world, remember that undergraduate programmes generally last three years (instead of four) and most master’s programs last one year (instead of two).
