General Funding Opportunities


Fees and Maintenance

My fee status is:

I shall have the following financial dependants:

Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £11,328
Maintenance £11,438
Total Annual Commitment £22,766

All MASt courses are treated as undergraduate courses for fee purposes. International/overseas students are therefore also charged the undergraduate College fee, which is in addition to the University fee and maintenance costs. Visit the International Students Fees page on the Undergraduate Study website for more details.

There is a field course, usually in southern Spain, during the Easter vacation (covid permitting).  Whilst not mandatory, MASt students are expected to attend where possible.  The Department covers the full cost of travel for this course and subsidises other costs for the course but each student is expected to contribute £140.
