NOTES

(1) Tuition fees will normally increase each year, at least in line with the increase in the UK Research Councils' percentage increase in their indicative fee level. Tuition fees for students admitted under individual or collective collaborative arrangements with external organisations will normally vary from those presented here. Tuition fees may also be supplemented by additional charges or fees as agreed with the student or sponsor.

(2) 'Outside the UK' means that the student spends the majority of their time outside the UK and therefore includes most of those 'split site' and 'distance learning' arrangements where students are primarily or wholly based overseas.

(3) Route A students are not normally eligible for the writing up fee but will usually be charged the annual tuition fee pro rata for any period of registration which exceeds the normal period for this route. Writing-up status must be confirmed in writing by a student's supervisor before any writing-up fee will be sanctioned.

(4) This fee (like any other fee) may be subsidised by the student's Academic Group, resulting in a transfer between the relevant Academic Group budgets.
