For subsequent years of study please assume a 3% inflationary increase year-on-year.

The fee income we receive is used to enhance students' academic and social experience by investing in the quality of teaching and research, student services and a range of academic facilities. It also helps us to provide a range of initiatives to support access for all to higher education. We have been consistently placed in the top 5 for student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2005-2017. Overall student satisfaction, English mainstream universities) every year since the survey began and are ranked in the top 25 universities in the UK by the Guardian and in the top 200 of the world's Higher Education Institutions. We are committed to our continued investment in the student experience.
