Fees and funding

The fee for each cohort is set annually by the University and represents the part-time fee for that academic year.  Once a student is on the programme the fee will be increased in line with inflation for each subsequent year of the course.

The course fee for:

  • 16/17 is £3,845 per academic year, for four years minimum, for UK/EU nationals and £6,869 per academic year, for four years minimum, for overseas nationals;
  • 17/18 is £3,940 per academic year, for four years minimum, for UK/EU nationals and £7,040 per academic year, for four years minimum, for overseas nationals.  

Fees are subject to a small increase each academic year.

To help finance your postgraduate study at Lancaster, you can apply for funding from charities and other funders: browse our online database powered by Postgraduate Studentships.  

Applicants from the European Union can read more information, from Lancaster University, following the 2016 Referendum.

When you apply you will need to indicate your likely source of funding for your fees. If you are not self-funding you should investigate possible sources of finance as soon as you can for the full period of your study. Many students have been supported by their employing institutions.
