2023/24 Postgraduate Tuition Fees

The UK and Welsh Governments have confirmed that European Union (EU) students commencing their studies in the academic year 2021/22 will no longer be eligible for home fee status. Fees for EU students will therefore be charged in line with international fees from 2021/22 onwards.

We are delighted to provide our international students with the Aberystwyth Inclusive Accommodation Offer, meaning the cost of your housing is included in your tuition fees. For more information on this please see International Accommodation Award.  In addition, your fees will remain the same for the duration of your course.
