Tuition fees for postgraduate research

Tuition fees are payable annually at the point of enrolment. If you are in receipt of sponsorship, the University will invoice your sponsor for the relevant amount.

It may be possible for self-funding students to set up a monthly payment plan in line with the University's published financial procedures. 

The payment of tuition fees will entitle you to supervision, use of library and other university facilities. 

When you have completed (1) your normal expected period of registration and (2)  your data collection and analysis AND you are in a position to formally submit your thesis within one year, you may apply to enter a 'writing-up' period. During this time you will pay a much reduced ‘writing up’ fee, normally for a period of one year only.

International Students only

50% of annual tuition fee to be paid prior to enrolment and for new applicants prior to issue of a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies.
