Tuition fees

Cost of tuition fees

Newcastle College University Centre’s tuition fee for new full-time UK and EU students studying a Foundation Degree, one-year Honours Degree (Top-Up) or three-year Honours Degree starting in September 2020 is up to £9,000 per year.*

The tuition fee for a part-time degree course starting September 2020 is £4,625 per year.

You can choose to pay your tuition fees up-front or take out a Tuition Fee Loan from the Student Loan Company, which currently defers payment until you earn over £25,725 per year. At this point you will start paying back 9% of your earnings above £25,725.

You can apply for student finance by registering your details at or alternatively you can apply for student finance on your UCAS application form. If you do not wish to take out a student loan you can speak to our student services team for advice and guidance by emailing or telephoning 0191 200 4000.

*You should expect to pay tuition fees for every year in attendance and be aware these fees may increase annually. On the basis of current government guidance any increase is unlikely to exceed the increase in inflation by reference to the Retail Price Index (RPI).
