Do I need to pay tuition fees?

If you are nominated to the University of York by your home university on a valid student exchange agreement then you will not need to pay tuition fees to the University of York. To check whether you can apply as a visiting exchange student, contact your home university.

If you're applying to York as an independent visiting student (not on a student exchange agreement) you'll pay tuition fees directly to the University of York. Your tuition fees will cover the costs of tuition, supervision, exams and an academic transcript.

If you're an undergraduate or postgraduate taught student the minimum fee payable is equivalent to the fees for one term. If you're a postgraduate research students there is a sliding scale for fees.

The following tuition fee rates are for full-time study:

Additional courses

If you take any additional courses, such as those through our Centre for Lifelong Learning or foreign language courses through Languages for All then additional fees may be charged.

Special arrangements apply for some schemes where students pay fees directly to their home university, or who come to York through certain third party providers. Contact the Centre for Global Programmes (visiting-students@york.ac.uk) if you are unsure whether this applies to you.

Help and support to improve your academic writing and language skills can be found at our Writing Centre. They also offer credit-bearing modules.
