Fees and Maintenance

Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost

Maintenance £14,830
Total Annual Commitment £23,674
Component Cost
University Composition Fee £8,844
Maintenance £14,830
Total Annual Commitment £23,674

Please note that fees shown for the PhD portion of the course are an estimate based on the current PhD fee.  Fees applicable to your year of entry to the PhD have not yet been confirmed, but are likely to be 5% higher than the estimate presented.

Additional costs may be incurred in relation to PhD associated fieldwork and/or research trips/long term attachments, bespoke to the individual student and project. These could include equipment, books, IT, photocopying, bespoke training, travel for conferences, and summer schools.

Supervisors are often able to cover or partially contribute to these costs, depending on the financial resources available. Where not possible, or where research-related costs are not specifically included in a stipend, or if students are self-funded, students will usually be expected to find additional funding elsewhere, e.g. University/College. In some cases, research costs may be much higher, for example, if a long-term attachment is required, and in these cases, applicants should agree with their supervisor what an appropriate amount might be before accepting the project, or consider a more feasible project.
