Fees are charged by module on a semester basis. Tuition fees include laboratory fees, examination fees (excluding supplementary examination fees, library subscriptions student facilities and personal accident insurance). Charges relating to the provision of additional text material e.g. supplementary notes, field trips where applicable, will be raised separately, depending on the particular modules for which students are registered.
For more details of the charges for each module, as well as supplementary charges see appropriate link or contact the Student Administration department.
IMPORTANT! The fees listed here are for guideline purposes only. They indicate the approximate amount payable by students who are registered for the normal academic load on a full-time basis. The actual fees raised will vary depending on the specific modules taken. Prices will also be increased between 10% - 15% per year.
