The Home Undergraduate fee for a study year abroad (either as part of an exchange scheme or without an exchange) has been set by the UK Office for Students at a maximum of approx. 15% of the full-time fee in the year the student starts their programme. This fee applies regardless of the year within the programme that the year abroad is taken.
For Home Undergraduates starting their programme in 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23, the fee for the year abroad is £1,385. (NB. For Home Undergraduates who started their programme in 2018/19, the fee is £1,350).
For Overseas Undergraduates who started their programme in 2022/23 or earlier, the fee for the year abroad is £4,625 (50% of the Home Undergraduate full-time fee of £9,250).
Please note that the fee structure for Overseas Undergraduates taking an exchange/study abroad year will change from 2023/24. Where the exchange/study abroad year is not a compulsory part of a Language Centre BSc, Overseas Undergraduates who start in 2023/24 or later will pay the full-time fee of whichever programme they are taking as normal.
Overseas Undergraduates who take a compulsory year abroad on one of the Language Centre's two BScs will pay 15% of the full-time Overseas fee. For students who start on one of these programmes in 2023/24, this fee is £3,696.
