University fees and funding 2012
If you’re thinking about coming to De Montfort University (DMU) in 2012, money will be on your mind. The government has significantly cut higher education funding, and because of this, universities have to charge students the full cost of their courses.
To help demystify the changes to student finance we have produced a fees and funding 2012 leaflet for students to use when making an informed decision about their future.
Students can also access advice from our Student Services department and Money Saving Expert's Martin Lewis as part of their research into student funding.
Funding available for undegraduate students in 2012
We are committed to ensuring talented students have the opportunity to study at university and so we have launched a package of more than £20 million of financial support, outreach and retention activities over three years. There will also be an additional investment of £8.75 million in a new leisure centre and learning zones.
We will also significantly enhance employability and skills development support for all students at DMU, including an exciting new internship/placement programme to boost job prospects for all students.
Fees information for undergraduate students in 2012
We have set BA/BSc/LLB tuition fees for 2012/13 at £9,000 in order to maintain and enhance our work transforming the lives of students. This will allow us to continue to invest in the student experience, while representing value for money for all students, regardless of financial circumstances.
Please also read our policy on tuition fee charging and refunding.
Our Foundation Degree fees are £6,000 per year. Check the fees for students studying at our partner institutions.
In 2012 the government plans to extend tuition fee loans to part-time students. Fees are yet to be set, please keep checking this page for the latest information. Also see our fees and funding 2012 leaflet
Students on an Erasmus exchange or placement
If you are on an Erasmus scheme, you will not be charged any fees during your year abroad and will still be eligible for DMU bursaries and scholarships. If you take a sandwich year placement, you will be charged fees of £650 for the year, and will not have access to any DMU scholarships and bursaries unless you are a care leaver or estranged.
Deferred entry for 2012
If you are deferring entry and are due to start in 2012 you will have to pay the higher rate of tuition fee.
* De Montfort University reserves the right to revise, review or withdraw any of the scholarships, bursaries and other funding listed at any time without prior notice.
