Home (UK) / EU Undergraduate Tuition Fees 2018/19
Maximum Home (UK)/EU tuition fees for standard undergraduate degree and PGCE courses at Canterbury Christ Church University are set by the UK Government.
In 2017/18, the University increased the 2017/18 Home (UK) / EU tuition fees to £9,250 in line with the Government’s inflation rate of 2.8%, which was approved by Parliament. This is because the University met its quality assessments under the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).
On 1 October 2017, the Government confirmed that tuition fees for 2018/19 would be held at £9,250. This is the full-time tuition fee the University will charge for courses where the Government sets the fees. Where applicable, the equivalent part-time tuition fee will be held at £4,625. This freeze will apply to undergraduate and PGCE new entrant students in 2018/19. It will also apply to continuing students who started these courses in 2017/18.
The University’s 2018/19 tuition fees for new entrants and continuing students studying on all other undergraduate courses where the UK Government does not set the fee will be publicised on the individual course pages. The fees for these courses will be subject to an inflationary increase of 3% in 2018/19.
For new entrants in 2018/19, the Government confirmed that EU students will pay the same tuition fees as UK students.They will remain eligible for financial support for the duration of their course, even if the course finishes after the UK's exit from the EU.
Year on Year undergraduate / PGCE tuition fee increases for 2018/19 new entrants and continuing students who started in 2017/18
The University reserves the right to increase all full-time and part-time undergraduate, and part-time PGCE, tuition fees mid-course.
The fees for courses where the Government sets the fees will rise in line with any subsequent inflationary increase in the Government tuition fee cap approved by Parliament. The University will publish information about the level of any inflationary increase on its website following a Government announcement.
The fees for all other undergraduate courses where the UK Government does not set the fee will rise in line with RPI March 2018. The University will confirm the percentage level of any inflationary increase on the course pages after March 2018.
International Tuition Fees
Undergraduate / PGCE tuition fees for International students are not set by the Government. The University’s 2018/19 tuition fees for international students, and any mid-course increases, will be published on each course webpage once finalised.
