Fees for 2014/15 are likely to be similar to the below:

  • Modules of 15 credits = £417
  • Modules of 20 credits = £556
  • Modules of 30 credits = £834

Additional costs

In addition to your tuition fee charges and living costs certain or modules may attract further mandatory or optional costs necessary for you to fully participate and complete your module(s) of choice. You will need to budget for these costs separately as they are not included in the overall tuition fee you are charged. Such costs can include fieldwork trips, travelling expenses for work or study placements, laboratory and equipment costs or DBS checks.
