MA Fees and Funding
Please see the individual course pages for details of the current fees: http://media.leeds.ac.uk/pg/taught-ma-programmes/
Tuition fee depositIf you need a visa to study in the UK you will be required to pay a tuition fee deposit before being issued with your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS). The tuition fee deposit will be deducted from your course tuition fee and shown on your CAS.
Fees must be paid in full before you can register as a postgraduate student, unless you are paying the fees yourself. If you are self-financing you can pay fees in two instalments, with the first payable at registration and second coming out as direct debit from UK bank account in February. If you are supported by your government, employer or other sponsor, you should provide a letter from them addressed to the University of Leeds, confirming that the fees will be paid directly. Sponsors cannot pay by instalments. More information for sponsored students can be accessed here.
For any questions about the deposit, or for further details of fees and charges, please contact Accounts Receivable at: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to: Accounts Receivable, The University of Leeds, Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Building, University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT.

The alumni bursary can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Leeds scholarships and awards; the 10% bursary is calculated based on the net fee remaining ie after other scholarship and awards have been deducted.
The bursary is awarded to all those students who have either studied at Leeds or hold a Leeds award but studied at an affiliated college. The bursary can be combined with other Leeds bursary/fee discounts. Please see here for more information. Those who are eligible for the bursary will be identified as part of the admissions process.
