Tuition fees

Tuition fees are one of the main costs of studying at university. At Hartpury, your tuition fees cover a variety of costs including the teaching of lectures, tutorials and lab sessions.

The tuition fees also contribute to the running of a vibrant student community. The fee is due at the start of each academic year of your studies, but most students choose to take out a student loan to cover this cost.

Hartpury University alumni are eligible for a 20% discount on University tuition fees.

The fees detailed on our finance pages are for students enrolling for the academic year 2022/23 unless otherwise stated. These fees may change in future years.

Undergraduate course fees are charged per year.
