Postgraduate Certificate Programmes
The total cost of a University of Liverpool online programme includes:
You will incur an extension fee if you do not complete your studies within three years for a masters programme or five years for a doctoral programme. Please note that the cost of your programme is subject to an annual review, and does not include possible resit fees for individual modules.
This fee covers the cost of your tuition only. The tuition fee does not include the following: application fee, reservation fee, technology fee, resit fees, extension fees, doctoral residency fee, study skill course fee or any other fee unrelated to tuition.
The application fee is a non-refundable fee incurred when a student applies to join one of the University of Liverpool’s online programmes.
The reservation deposit is a non-refundable deposit made to secure a student’s place on one of the University of Liverpool’s online programmes. Please note that the reservation deposit is deducted from the total cost of the programme. The reservation deposit will be refunded only if your application is declined by the University.
In addition to the tuition fee for the programme, students pay a technology fee, which provides 24/7 access to the online learning environment and the other required licensed technologies.
We currently accept a wide range of payment methods including credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and JCB), bank transfers and Paypal. We are also planning to offer additional Alternative Payment Methods (APMs) for many countries.
Please see the Centre for Student Success here for more information.
Some opportunities for financial assistance are available to our students through external providers. Many of these sources can help you pay for your tuition while you are enrolled on a degree programme, or assist you with loan repayment after graduation. To learn more about your funding options, contact an Enrolment Advisor.
You can change your payment plan provided you have 15 or more unused study points. Please note that if you change your payment plan, all your used study points will be billed immediately at your current fee per study point before the new payment plan takes effect.
A study point is a unit we use to calculate the amount billed on your invoice. The amount you are charged per study point, and the number of study points included on your invoice are dependent on your payment plan.
