Arts University Bournemouth maintains its fees at the lowest possible levels and has a thorough quality assurance procedure to ensure a high standard of teaching and resources for students. Our fees cover all teaching plus access to full facilities and resources during the term-time opening hours.
For International* full fee paying students the fee is fixed for the whole course so what you pay in the first year will be the same as what you pay in the second or third year of the same programme.
(*International = overseas students from countries other than the European Union or in some cases EU citizens who have been living outside of the EU for several years).
If you are unsure if you should pay the International fee or if you would be classed as a UK/EU student please complete and return a fees assessment form (downloadable pdf). Further advice on fee status can also be found on the UKCISA website.

Before leaving home you must be sure that you will have enough money to pay for your course fees and living expenses. Living in Bournemouth is much more economical than London and you should allow approximately £5000 to £8000 per year.
If you need a visa you will have to prove to the UK Border Authorities that you can pay your first year fees and have funds for subsistence/accommodation for the first year of study at a rate of £600 a month for nine months. (The rate has been set at £800 a month for students in London).
The International Student Calculator has been launched to help international students plan and manage their money for studies in the UK and you may find it useful to learn about building a lifestyle budget and understanding how you will spend your time as well as your money in the UK.
