UG Home Tuition Fees
BY Student Financial support 15 March 2017
How much will my tuition fees be?
Our full-time undergraduate Home/EU course fees are currently £9,000 per year for students who started their course in or before the 2016/17 academic year. From the start of the 2017/18 academic year, tuition fees will rise to £9,250 in line with the rise of the statutory maximum cap in England (Statement from the Department for Education). The increase in tuition fees will ONLY apply to new students, commencing their studies in the 2017/18 academic year.
You can apply for a government tuition fee loan to cover the cost of your fees. For more information on student loans, visit your Student Finance awarding authority webpages.
You don’t have to repay the loan until you have left education and are earning over £21,000 a year. The size of your repayments are tied to the amount of money you are earning. This means that if your salary goes down, repayments go down. If it falls below £21,000, repayments stop altogether.
If you haven’t repaid your loan after 30 years, any outstanding amount is written off (subject to government regulations). Find out more about what you pay, and when.

Placement/sandwich year fees
Some programmes include an optional or required placement year. Find out more about Placements at Reading. A discounted fee of 15% of the normal tuition fee (either at Home/EU or at International level) is payable to the University of Reading. The discounted fee only applies to situations where the full year is spent on placement. Where only a part of the year is spent on placement the full tuition fee is payable to the University of Reading as normal.
