How much does it cost to study an online degree?

Studying for a degree is a life changing decision, not to be taken lightly. The financial side is one area you need to consider, and hopefully this post will give you the insight on what you need to know.

Online learning is a more affordable way to study for a degree

Studying online tends to be less expensive then studying on campus. Prices start from £6,000 at the time of writing for a Master’s degree studied online.  An online undergraduate degree starts from £12,000 at time of writing, compared to a potential £27,000 for a degree studied on campus. There’s also no travel, accommodation or (if applicable) visa costs that might normally be associated with attending University traditionally.

No need to pause your career

You normally don’t need to log in online at set times, which means you can fit study around your day job without the need to reduce your working hours and consequently your income. Our courses are designed to enhance your career, not interfere with it.

Pay as you study

We operate a pay-per-module system, this means you only pay for the modules you’re currently studying, making it a little easier to manage financially. A single 15-credit module starts from £500. Payment is made in advance of each semester.

Tuition fee loan eligibility

We’ve had a growth in professionals taking up our undergraduate online degrees thanks to online UK//EU students now being eligible for tuition fee loans. A great help if you can’t quite fund the course in the first instance. The Student Finance England website can explain if you’re eligible for a tuition fee loan.

To find out more about the costs visit the fees section of the UH Online website for a breakdown of costs and then apply today.

Next application deadline at time of writing is 15th July 2014 for a September start.
