UK Full time: £9,250

EU Overseas Full time: £18,180

It is not possible to confirm fees for future academic years, as these are dependent on Teaching Excellence Framework outcomes, but the maximum increase in each year will not exceed the rate of inflation, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Books and other resources: a wide range of resources, including core texts, are available from The Courtauld Book Library, including in the form of e-books. Students also have free access to other libraries in London, such as Senate House, and the V&A and British Library, provided they register.

Travel: Overnight travel, (which forms part of some Year Three modules), is subsidised (in 2018-19, the subsidies are £150 for each UK trip; and £300 for trips to Europe; £550 to other destinations). The Courtauld also provides full travel insurance for all trips. Trips are planned with the subsidies in mind, in order to minimise any additional costs for students. However, it is possible that subsidies will not cover all travel and accommodation costs, as well as entry fees to various museums/ galleries. Students will be given notice of the planned Study Trips and the expected costs at the beginning of Year Three, and are encouraged to speak to Student and Academic Services, should they have any financial worries about the trip

Accommodation and living costs not included in the fees: An overview of The Courtauld and University of London accommodation can be obtained from our Accommodation page https://courtauld.ac.uk/study/student-life/accommodation. Alternatively, some students prefer to seek private accommodation through London estate agents to fit their budget and desired specifications.
