Tuition fees

Tuition fees vary for different courses and are subject to revision each year.

Please search for your chosen course of interest and navigate to the 'Fees & funding' section of the entry for all tuition fee details. 

Important to know:

  • The fees listed on the postgraduate prospectus are for the first year of a course only - if your course continues into subsequent years, the fees for those years may differ. 

  • Most courses last more than a single year and it is therefore likely that tuition fees for your course will increase annually, reflecting the changes in costs of delivering your course and any changes in government policy or regulation. 

  • King’s reserves the right to increase fees annually. You should expect fees to increase by at least 3% on the previous academic year’s tuition fee. Tuition fee increases may only sometimes apply to self-funding overseas fees status students, but not to home/EU fee status students as fees are subject to a cap imposed by regulatory requirements.

  • Where such increases are necessary, King's will publish the new fees on its website not less than 3 months’ notice before the start of the academic year to which the fee increase is intended to apply. 

For further information and detail, including details about fees for EU students, please refer to Student Funding: Postgraduate Tuition Fees.



Funding options

When applying for postgraduate study it is important to consider the availability of finance for both tuition fees and living costs.

The majority of postgraduate students pay their tuition fees through private sources such as:

  • Industrial sponsorship

  • Borrowed money

  • Scholarships from agencies and charities 

For most students, funding for their living costs is a combination of:

  • Bank loans

  • Personal savings

  • Family support

  • Income from part-time work
