Please see the various sections below for the answers to some questions that are commonly asked by UK/EU undergraduates about financing their studies.
UK/EU undergraduate tuition fees have remained at £9,000 for the last four years. The recently published Government White Paper,
Success as a Knowledge Economy
, states that the £9,000 maximum fees introduced in 2012, are now worth £8,546 in real terms. This has reduced higher education’s spending power to invest in the provision for students and represents a 5 per cent reduction in value in real terms.
According to a Department of Education statement in May, fees would be worth £8,000 by 2020, if the £9,000 cap were left unchanged. The proposal to raise the current maximum statutory tuition fee from £9,000 now to £9,250 in 2017/18 is a step towards closing this gap.
All universities with a satisfactory and current quality assurance award from the Higher Education Funding Council for England will be eligible to raise fees. This is a year-on-year rise of 2.8 per cent, in line with the Office for Budgetary
Responsibility forecast for RPI-X (the retail price index, excluding mortgage interest payments).
This new fee level for 2017/18 for all UK/EU undergraduate students who started their study after 01 September 2012 will mean that Oxford Brookes can further reinvest in its students and further improve not only the quality of their degree, but
also the legacy of their qualification at Oxford Brookes as the University continues to enhance its reputation locally, nationally and internationally.
Previous discussions with student representatives have been helpful in identifying that a proportion of the additional funds received should be invested directly into enhanced provision of mentoring of students by alumni. This is already an area
of great strength in a number of subject areas at Oxford Brookes and enhancing this provision and rolling it out more widely will have significant benefits for our students, as well as for the sectors in which our graduates go on to work. The
University will also continue to invest in other programmes which directly improve the student experience, including its ten year estate investment plan.
Oxford Brookes also remains committed to Widening Participation and has committed to investing over £7.5 million in access, student success, progression and financial support for under-represented students in 2017/18 alone.
Tuition fees from undergraduate UK and EU students are invested in the wide range of services available to you during your time at Oxford Brookes
The increase in tuition fees will not increase your monthly repayments. Student loan repayments for students who started their study after 1 September 2012 see UK graduates pay back 9 per cent of their income over the minimum amount of £21,000. For
example, graduates earning £25,000 per year will continue repay £30 per month (based on current Student Loan Company repayment rates).
The increase in tuition fees will increase the size of your student loan and will mean you repay your loan over a longer period of time. Currently, any outstanding student loan will be cancelled 30 years after you become eligible to repay.
Yes, the tuition fee increase to £9,250 from 2017/18 will apply to all UK/EU undergraduate students who started their study after 1 September 2012.
Existing EU and UK undergraduate tuition fee levels have remained the same for four years and have now reduced in value by more than 5 per cent in real terms. During this time, we have continued to apply inflationary increases to international and
The decision to apply a tuition fees increase across all years of UK/EU undergraduate entry will enable the university to further invest in the student experience. Previous discussions with student representatives have been helpful in identifying
areas where the University can further invest in the student experience. It has therefore been agreed that a proportion of the additional funds received will be invested directly into enhanced provision of mentoring for students by alumni.
The decision also means parity of charging across all UK/EU undergraduate students.
Students studying for a foundation degree with one of our partner colleges in 2018/19 will be charged £7,200 for full-time study and £4,500 if studying part-time. You will then have the option to top up to a full bachelor's degree by carrying out
just one year's further study. Where offered at a partner college, this will be charged at £7,200 in 2018/19.
Students coming to Brookes to top up to a full bachelor's degree will be charged £9,250 for full-time study or £750 per single module for part-time study.
Please note that Equine Science and Equine Science and Thoroughbred Management courses fee levels for new and continuing students will be £9,250 in 2018/19.
Part-time undergraduate students will pay £750 per single module.
Modular associate students will pay £6,000 per year or £3,000 per semester for full-time study or £750 per single module for part-time study.
