Fees and finance

Information on fees and finance at Cliff College.

This page will give you an overview of the fees at Cliff College. If you need more information, you can download our full fees and costs information sheet here. Please note that the fees for 2022-23 are the same for international and home students.

Cliff Year

The Cliff Year fee for 2022-23 is £2,495. This includes accommodation and meals at the College throughout the year (mid-September to July). This fee is subsidised by Cliff College to cover the full cost of the programme.

Participants on the Cliff Year often fundraise towards the cost of their fee, and we can provide information, support and ideas to help you with this.

Foundations for Mission and Ministry

The fee for the Foundations for Mission and Ministry programme is £2,000 for six units across two years. This does not cover meals or accommodation for optional onsite teaching days at Cliff College or Edgehill College.

Alternatively, students are able to take individual Mission and Ministry units for £360 per unit.

Undergraduate

Our undergraduate programme fees for 2022-23 are £7,300 per year for full-time students, or £3,650 per year for part-time students.

Most home students apply for a student loan to help them with tuition fees and living costs while they study – you can find more information about this on the Student Finance website.

MA Mission

The fee for the MA programme in 2022-23 is £6,800. The MA can be studied full-time or part-time. Tuition fees are paid per unit (£1,360) in advance of each unit (including the dissertation).

Some home students apply for a Master’s Loan to help them with tuition fees and living costs while they study – you can find more information about this on the Master's Loan section of the Student Finance website.

PhD programmes

Our PhD programme fees for 2022-23 are £7,200 per year for full-time students and £3,600 for part-time students; the fee for a write-up year is £1,800.

The PhD Missiology is only available part-time, and the fees are £3,600 per year.

Some home students apply for a Doctoral Loan to help them with tuition fees and living costs while they study – you can find more information about this on the Doctoral Loan section of the Student Finance website.

Students from the USA

The tuition fees for 2022-23 for international students are the same as those for domestic students.

If you are a US national, you may be eligible for a federal loan towards your tuition costs. Please contact us on enquiries@cliffcollege.ac.uk for more information.

Read our policies on lending and funding for US students in receipt of federal loans.

Disabled Students' Allowance

There is extra support available for students who have a disability, such as a long-term health condition, mental health condition or a specific learning disability such as dyslexia or ADHD.

This kind of support depends on your individual needs and does not need to be paid back. You may be eligible for help with the costs of:

  • specialist equipment, for example a computer if you need one because of your disability;
  • non-medical helpers, for example a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter or specialist note taker;
  • extra travel to attend your course or placement because of your disability;
  • other disability-related study support, for example having to print additional copies of documents for proof-reading.

More information on Disabled Students' Allowance can be found here.

Residential Community and Accommodation

Our Cliff Year participants along with most of our full-time students live at Cliff College and form a key part of our residential community. The accommodation in the College is in en-suite single rooms; most students are catered for by our catering team and eat together in our dining room.

Almost all of our MA and PhD students, as well as some of our BA students, study part-time and live offsite. These students can book a bedroom and meals during their teachings weeks or in order to use the library and meet with faculty.

Our full fees sheet contains more information on the cost of accommodation and meals packages at the College. If you have further questions, please contact us at enquiries@cliffcollege.ac.uk.
