Information for 2016/17 UK undergraduates

Paying your tuition fees

When you enrol at the start of each academic year, you accept responsibility for paying your tuition fees

How much are my fees?

The following table sets out the tuition fees for Home and EU students studying in 2016/17. These figures apply to all students starting 2012 or later:

      Full time        (per year)
Foundation year
Part time  (per year)
Sandwich year or placement

If you are a continuing full-time undergraduate (Home and EU) and you started your course before 1 September 2012, the fees for the 2015/16 academic year will be £3,465.  The threshold for paying back your loans is £15,000. 

EU students

If you are studying at LJMU, and you are an EU national, please read this funding statement from the Student Loans Company. For more information, please contact us.  

How to pay your tuition fees

At the start of each new academic year, you need to either pay your tuition fees (plus any other related course costs) or provide evidence your fees will be paid by a sponsor.

Pay your tuition fees via epay

Sponsors include:
  • Student Loans Company. This includes the Student Awards Agency for Scotland, the local authorities in Wales and the library boards in Northern Ireland.
  • an employer 
  • another body, such as a local authority, that have accepted responsibility for paying your fees

Please note, your sponsor must have a UK address and postcode.

If it is unclear who is paying your fees, or the sponsor refuses or fails to pay, the University will assume you are paying them. 

If your fees are not being paid by a sponsor, the University expects full payment of any outstanding fees within 30 days of enrolment, unless arrangements have been made to pay by instalments.

If you are paying your tuition fees yourself, you should arrange an instalment plan at the beginning of your programme or year of study. You can do this through epay.

For further information regarding tuition fees, please contact us.

I’m having problems paying my fees

If you have not paid your fees in full within 30 days of enrolment, established an instalment plan, or provided evidence of sponsorship, we will contact you regarding fee payment.

Initially we will contact you by email, to your University account. We will then contact you by formal letter, to your home and local addresses. 

Please do not ignore these communications. Our intention is to remind you about your outstanding balance and to highlight that the sooner you address any issues regarding payment the easier it may be for us to assist you.
