As a student-centred University, based on our welcoming Catholic ethos Newman is committed to providing a values-driven university education.

Whatever your household income you can afford to attend university as tuition fees do not have to be paid up front, and only repaid once you start earning over £25,000 per year. Newman’s 4.5 year part-time degrees also offer a cost effective alternative to full-time study, costing just £5,130 per year which can also be paid for by government loans.

Our courses are designed not only to give you the knowledge and skills valued by graduate employers – Newman consistently has one of the best graduate employment rates of UK universities, but also give you the creative outlook and flexibility required to be successful throughout your career. Earning a degree represents an excellent investment in your future.

Newman’s prudent financial planning and stability has enabled the University to invest over £20million in transforming the campus including a new library and state-of-the-art teaching facilities. This investment ensures that Newman students have access to the high quality facilities they deserve. Our fee levels have been set to ensure that we can continue to invest in the best learning resources and lecturers to enable Newman graduates to reach their potential.

A fundamental part of Newman University’s mission is to support social mobility through education. There is a range of student support and scholarship packages designed to provide financial assistance to students. Newman is sensitive to the concerns of some communities regarding interest bearing loans, which has been considered when developing our full and part-time fees.

It is important to remember that no fees have to be paid upfront and the monthly repayments made after graduation are based on your income, not the value of your loan.
