Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £9,858
Maintenance £18,625
Total Annual Commitment £28,483

Students wishing to undertake research or fieldwork in Latin America will incur costs for flights, accommodation and subsistence. There are sources of funding available to students to apply to for research trips, e.g. the Simon Bolivar Fund,  but students should not expect all of the costs of their research trip to be covered. If you have any concerns about this please speak to a member of CLAS staff before applying noting that research abroad is not a mandatory part of the course.

If you study part-time, the University Composition Fee will be 60% of the annual full-time fee for 5 years; or 75% of the annual full-time fee for 4 years.
