Online MSc courses - tuition fees

Total course fees £7,800
Per 15-credit module fee £650

If you are based in the UK or the EU, you may be eligible for a government-backed postgraduate loan to cover the full costs of the course.

In addition, if you have successfully completed an undergraduate degree at the University of Sunderland, you are eligible for a 10% tuition fees reduction.

You pay tuition fees for each module taken, either module-by-module or in full at the start of your course.

If you pay module-by-module, you will pay in instalments of £650

Fees will be reviewed annually and may increase by a small percentage each academic year for continuing students. If you choose to pay for each module separately, this could cost you more than paying in full at the start of your course.

The University’s academic year runs from 1 August to 31 July. We will notify you of any increase in fees as soon as we can.

You should be prepared to pay for additional items such as textbooks and PC equipment in order to complete your studies.
