Cheapest Tuition fees in UK Universities for International Students

If you want to study in the UK, unfortunately it doesn’t come cheap – around £12,200/US$16,120 is needed for living costs alone (and that’s if you don’t study in the more expensive London).

Domestic/EU students can now be charged a maximum of £9,250 (~€10,830) for an undergraduate degree, while international undergraduate tuition fees vary considerably.

So, if you’re on a budget and looking for more affordable options, here are the 10 cheapest UK universities for international students, based on data from the Reddin Survey of University Tuition Fees 2018/19, conducted by The Complete University Guide. All fees are for overseas students who started in 2018.

 

Of course, these fees are still high – but luckily there are plenty of scholarships available.
