Fees & scholarships

We provide significant funding for applicants who have been offered a place on the MA in Human Resources and Consulting programme and who meet our scholarship criteria. These generous scholarships are provided for self-funded and part-funded applicants.


The tuition fees below for the Human Resources and Consulting MA are for 2018 entry.

  • UK and EU students:£11,500 (GBP)
  • Non-EU students: £18,000 (GBP)

The tuition fee includes:

  • registration
  • all tuition for the twelve months
  • all examination costs during the twelve months
  • graduation

If you accept a place on the programme, you will be asked to pay a deposit to secure your place. The deposit is then deducted from your tuition fees which you pay when you start the programme. It is not normally refundable if you change your mind about coming to Lancaster, but is refundable if you do not meet any conditions attached to the offer.

Payment of fees

Fees are payable on registration at the start of the programme. It is also possible to spread your fee payments over two instalments: in October and January.

Living costs

Fortunately Lancaster is a cheaper place to live in than many other larger cities in the UK. For estimated costs of what you may need to budget to cover food, accommodation, books and other items, see the general guidance on living costs for postgraduate students.

If you are considering bringing dependants with you, the costs are likely to be higher: guidance on this is available from the LUMS Postgraduate Admissions Office.
