The Home Undergraduate fee for a study year abroad (either as part of an exchange scheme or without an exchange) is set by the UK Office for Students - currently a maximum of approx. 15% of the full-time fee in the year the student starts their programme. This applies regardless of the year within the programme that the year abroad is taken.
For Home Undergraduates starting their programme in 2019/20 or later, 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 changes 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. (The fee for Home students will remain at £1,385).
