Fees and finance for the MBA

The tuition fees below for the Full-time MBA are for 2018 entry.

  • UK and EU students: £30,500 (GBP)
  • Overseas students: £30,500 (GBP)

The programme fees cover all tuition, registration, examination costs and graduation.

The deposit you pay when you accept a place on the programme is deducted from the payment due when you register on the MBA.

Fees are payable at the start of the academic year but it is also possible to spread your fee payments over two instalments: in October and January.

Living costs

You will need to budget extra for your accommodation, meals and personal spending. Lancaster, being a campus university, is substantially cheaper to live in than most UK city universities. All your main facilities and resources are within 10–15 minutes' walk on campus.

We strive to ensure that all students have the opportunity to undertake their Corporate Challenge in London. Accommodation costs in London are higher than in Lancaster. However, we will assist you with this cost difference and in securing suitable accommodation in the capital.

We estimate that you should budget for approximately £9,000 in addition to the MBA programme fees. If you are going to be bringing a partner and/or children with you, the costs will be higher: you may need another £4,500 for your partner and £3,000 per child.
