Costs

How much will it cost to study at Jesus College? Find out more about tuition fees and likely living costs.

Tuition fees

The tuition fees you pay for your course will depend on whether you are classed as a home or overseas student. We've provided some more information below, but if you're unsure of your fee status, you can find more information on the University website.

Home students

Tuition fees for students qualifying for Home fee status are regulated and capped by the government. Details of fees for 2021-22 can be found on the University website.

Currently, Home students can take out a government loan for their tuition fees. If you do this you can defer payment of the loan until after you’ve left university and are earning a certain minimum salary, at which point you’ll start to repay the loan in instalments.

Overseas students

Whether you're counted as an overseas student depends on where you live and your nationality. If you've been living in the UK for reasons other than education, for three years immediately before the start of your university course, you typically won't be defined as an overseas student. Home students whose families have been temporarily posted abroad usually won't be considered as overseas students either. 

Most EU, EEA and Swiss students commencing their studies in October 2021 will now be classified as international/overseas students. Please see the University website for more details.

Tuition fees for international students vary depending on the course you're studying. See international fees and costs for details.

International students also have to pay an additional College fee each year, which varies slightly between Colleges. For 2021-22 our fee is £10,418.

Living costs

We offer accommodation to all undergraduates throughout their course.

Your total living costs - including rent, food, books and study materials, clothing, entertainment etc - will obviously depend on your lifestyle, but we estimate that around £9,890 a year should cover everything for a home student in 2021-22.

If you're an overseas student your expenses may be higher, for instance if you have to stay in the UK during vacations. Again, living costs will vary by lifestyle, but we estimate that you'll need around £11,350.

The University website has a more detailed breakdown of estimated living costs.
