Fees, Scholarships and Living Costs
When thinking about studying at university, finance will always be an important factor. There are costs to be met: tuition fees, books, accommodation, travel and living expenses. But there are also possible sources of funding: loans and grants, bursaries and scholarships and there is always advice available through the University and through national online resources.
Fee information for undergraduate courses starting in 2013. For questions regarding payment of fees, please contact email@example.com
Tuition fees and accommodation costs are considered separately. You can either pay your tuition fees in full prior to the start of your academic year or in two instalments with the first instalment payable prior to the start of your academic year and the second instalment due towards the beginning of the next term. Exact dates will be confirmed in your fee statement which will be emailed to your University account during your first term. In order to register for your course it is a requirement that at least the first instalment has been paid. If you choose to pay in two instalments and the second instalment is not paid by the due date, this could lead to the suspension of your registration.

The cost of living in Leicester is very reasonable compared with many other cities in the UK. It is very difficult to estimate living costs, as every student has different expectations! The University’s International Office suggests that students should budget around £680-£730 per month to cover living costs for a student lifestyle, including accommodation, lighting, heating, food, daily local travel, books/stationery and modest clothing, leisure and personal expenses. Advice about budgeting is available from the Student Welfare Service
