Cliff Year

The Cliff Year runs from September to June and costs £2,495. These costs include accommodation and meals at the College for the duration of your chosen 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.

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

For international students, the fees for undergraduate study are £9,500 per year for full-time students, or £4,750 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.

Students from the USA

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 support is known as Disabled Students Allowance, or DSA.

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. The accommodation and food costs for the 2024-25 academic year are as follows:
