Course fees

In 2012, the Government introduced financial arrangements which led to the withdrawal of most of the public funding for higher education.

Fees at Worcester reflect the cost of efficiently providing an excellent education. Our philosophy is that once a student is selected to study here, they become a member of our community. This informs everything we do.

At Worcester, we are committed to providing our future students with an outstanding education, facilities and opportunities.

The University remains committed to providing more opportunities for highly talented, ambitious students regardless of their financial circumstances.

Tuition fees are reviewed annually and undergraduate tuition fees usually increase in line with inflation.
