Research degree fees (PhD and MPhil)
If you’re interested in a postgraduate research course, you can find our tuition fee rates below. Postgraduate fees are subject to change, so please check back regularly.
Studying a PhD
If you’re studying a PhD full time, fees will be payable for your first three years. For subsequent years you’ll only pay an annual 'registration-only' fee. Part-time PhD fees are payable over six years, followed by the annual 'registration-only' fee.
Studying an MPhil
If you’re studying an MPhil full-time, fees are payable for your first two years, followed by an annual 'registration-only' fee. Part-time MPhil fees are payable over four years, followed by the annual 'registration-only' fee.
Fees are charged each year and are also subject to change each year. Overseas PhD fees for 2022/23 onwards will be fixed at the point of entry, so you will be charged the same fee each year, based on when you started your programme.
The cost of the registration-only fee is displayed in the table below.
