Additional Costs

Additional Costs

Please note that additional costs are associated with some courses that are not covered by the tuition fees.

In some cases, where permissible, students might choose to embark on fieldwork as part of their Dissertation projects (though this is likely to be over the summer and the students themselves are responsible for meeting the costs of this kind of research). It is important that this does not contravene University regulations and where applicable,  UKVI Tier 4 visa regulations or US Federal Direct Loan regulations. 

Please see below for course specific costs:

Course/ModuleComment
Department of International Politics:
 Semester 2, GWM/ IPM1620 ‘Devolution and National Assembly for Wales’

Department of Information Studies:
P120 Digital Curation 
P121 Digital Information Services
P192 MA Archive Administration 
P194 MA Information and Library Studies

Location: London   Dates: mid to late January

Additional costs: c £400 per student (depending on where students choose to stay, where they are travelling from etc. as some travel from home and some may stay with friends/family). Travel and accommodation arrangements are left to the student for this reason. 
Institute of Biological, Environmental & Rural Sciences: 
C190 MRes Biosciences:
Students are required to attend a conference relevant to their field of research. This will often be cost-free to the student as Learned Societies often cover costs for postgrad members who attend their meetings but where this is not the case IBERS funds according to the formula: First £200 paid by IBERS, then half of anything (reasonable) above this. The conference is decided in consultation with the supervisor and there will almost always be one available that works out free or no more than £100 payable by the student.
Institute of Biological, Environmental & Earth Sciences:
relevant research projects in agricultural or biological science

It may be necessary to charge supplementary fees up to a maximum of £7,500 for each year of study for research in the Institute of Biological, Environmental & Rural Sciences involving large animals or significant amounts of consumable reagents, some of which can be inherently very costly.
