Operating Principles

  • Visiting Postgraduate Taught fees are calculated at 95% of the Full-Time fee, either Home or Overseas as appropriate. All fees are divided termly (36:36:28).
  • The termly fee for Postgraduate Taught students remains the same regardless of the number of modules studied. No additional fees can be charged by the Department.
  • Departments retain discretion to charge Visiting Postgraduate Research students additional fees to cover costs not included in the standard fee.
  • Departments also retain the flexibility to waive all or part of the fee for Visiting Postgraduate Research students where a reciprocal partnership agreement is in place with the student’s parent institution, or where there is a strategic case to do so.
