Additional course costs

There are a number of extra costs inherent in studying on certain courses. These typically relate to the cost of personal safety equipment (for lab work), field trip costs, materials required for art/design assignments and sports kits. These will be in addition to general study costs such as books, stationery, photocopying, etc.

Students on courses with significant laboratory content are likely to need to purchase a laboratory coat (approximately £30), safety shoes (approximately £40) and pay a locker deposit (around £45). Thesis requirements may increase normal spending on printing and photocopying. Also some additional travel costs may be involved. You may wish to purchase or upgrade your own computer hardware or software, though this is not compulsory. Where necessary, departments offer access to IT facilities.

As well as these general extra costs, some course-specific costs may also arise. These will be dependent on the area of research and can be discussed with supervisors.

Additional Course costs for postgraduate research students

There may be additional costs for postgraduate research students relating to Bench Fees, extension periods and late submission of thesis.

Fees are reviewed annually and are likely to increase to take into account inflationary pressures.
