International Fees, Finance and Scholarships

At NUA you see and feel the benefits of your investment every day.

Pursuing a degree qualification is a big financial commitment for UK and international students alike. For international students, though, there are more things to consider than tuition fees. It’s important you choose a place where you can afford to enjoy your life as a student in a new, exciting community.
