    hi all

    i've applied this year to universities to study Masters in Mech. engineering, although today someone said that you had to pay more in the final year to do the masters?? is this true? have i missed something vitally important?!

    and if so, how is this affected by the tuition fees sliding scale?

    help!

    im not sure- best thing to do is contact the universities themselves- email them would probably be best. I think though that if you do have to pay more then you will get a bigger loan to cover it- i personally thought it was the same- but what do i know!?!!

    I you do it as a 4 year course straight away I think it's the same per year (so 1/4 more expensive overall) , although I think it costs more if you do it after a Batchelor degree.

    If it's a 4 yr (5 yr in Scotland or with a foundation yr) undergraduate (ie first degree) course then you pay normal fees for every yr (just over £1000 if you're a home/Eu student and quite a bit more if you're an international student).

    If you've already done a 3 yr degree and it's a 1 yr postgraduate (ie after your first degree) course then it will likely cost much more then the £1k pa undergraduate home fee (usually about £6000-£10,000 for an engineering course).
    £10K EEK! How is anybody supposed to afford that?

    my masters is £1500 per year its def worth shopping round the unis for the best prices they really vary between unis.

    I believe if instead of a regular undergrad degree you do a 4th year and go straight to masters in the same subject that it isnt any extra in your final year.
