Fees and funding 2017/18

One of the first questions you're likely to ask about university is how much will it all cost? Going to university represents a real investment in your future and there is plenty of financial support available to students for both tuition fees and living expenses.

Undergraduate tuition fees

For 2017/18 undergraduate full-time home students tuition fees will be £9,250 

A tuition fee loan, up to £9,250 a year, will be available to students to cover tuition fee costs.

Further information about the change is available on our tuition fees news story.

The Vice-Chancellor's Sports Scholarships

The Vice-Chancellor's Sports Scholarships provide students with the opportunity to develop their sporting performance while studying at DMU. Eligible students will be awarded up to £6,000 of support.

LoveEU Bundle for 2017 entry

DMU welcomes students from more than 130 countries and to help reassure EU students, DMU has created the LoveEU Bundle, which includes:

NHS funding

The government is changing the way in which students beginning nursing, midwifery and speech and language therapy courses are funded.

For all students attending university from September 2017 onwards NHS bursaries will no longer be available. Instead, you will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs.

For details, please visit this NHS bursary reform page and the Council of Deans of Health website.

Nursing scholarship

As part of our Faculty’s on-going commitment to support our students in enhancing their graduate career opportunities and lifelong learning, we are proud to inform you of an exciting development which announces the launch of a new scholarship designed to provide financial support to students enrolled onto the Nursing with Registration (Learning Disability) and Nursing with Registration (Mental Health) programmes at DMU.

The Nursing Scholarship is awarded based on a record of academic achievements demonstrated through your previous studies and future successes at DMU. We will be offering eligible students’ a generous scholarship of up to £3,000 throughout the duration of the course.  

Employability Support Fund

The Employability Support Fund will provide £100 to every eligible final-year student to help towards the costs of pursuing their career aspirations. Students are expected to use the money to help pay for smart interview attire or towards the cost of creating a portfolio of work, for example.
