Fees and Payment
Currently the department has no scholarships available for our Actuarial Science distance learning courses. UK applicants may wish to consider applying for a career development loan*. For applicants outside of the UK you may wish to contact your local British Council Office who will be able to advise of any local scholarship programmes. Unfortunately this course does not support USA Department of Education loans.
Information about our alumni loyalty discount scheme can be found at the bottom of this page.
|Start Date||MSc fee||Postgraduate Diploma Fee|
Note: Fees shown cover the entire length of the course: these are not annual fees.
These are the total course fees for all students, with the exception of those living in some Caribbean countries who may be charged in US Dollars. The course fees cover the full cost of the course, including all study materials, tutor support and examinations.
Payment is the first step to becoming a fully registered student of the University of Leicester. You will have the option of selecting one of the following payment plans:
- Payment can be made in full at the point of initial registration;
- Half of your course fees (for PgDip applicants) can be paid at initial registration and the remaining balance on the anniversary of your registration or a third of your course fees (for MSc applicants) with the remaining two third paid on the subsequent anniversaries;
- or in three instalments per year over the normal period of registration for your course (for the Postgraduate Diploma this is two years, for the MSc this is over three years - see example below).
*If you intend to use a Career Development Loan to fund your studies please be aware that if the loan does not cover 100% of the course fee you will be liable for the remaining balance in six instalments as below as a proportion of the outstanding balance. The first instalment will fall due before you can register for the course.
