    Look for how much they charge international students.

    In theory, given free-market economics that should be the cost of the course. In practise as the government does not provide enough funding per capita for UK students, it will be around 75% of that figure, making an educated guess

    What do you mean by "the cost"? All you pay is tuition fees.

    Why do you need to know?

    Ask them is about all that is open to you.
    You might be able to work it out if you can get a look at the departments budgets.

    Yes and No.

    You are responsible for up to £1150 per year. The exact amount depends on you and your parents circumstances. No UK or EU student pays more than £1150 for next year.

    If you pay less than £1150 your local LEA pays the university the remainder, again up to £1150.

    It actually costs the universities far more per student to run their courses. The remainder of this is payed to them centrally by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) This money is dependant on various things, but you do not need to worry about it.

    By now you should have applied to your LEA for student support and the student loan. They will notify you formally, of what you are liable to pay in terms of tuition. Assuming you are a UK or EU student, it will not be greater than £1150. You then recieve a student loan of between £3070 and £4095, provided you are not living at home, or in London. The amount depends again on you and your parents circumstances. Some people are also eligible for a Higher Education grant of up to £1000 from your LEA

    All this excludes rent and food, which you should calculate seperately. You will need to check with your uni, how much rent will be.
