Additional expenses

There are no compulsory books to buy. All compulsory texts will be made available to you as part of the course at no extra cost. There is a suggested reading list which will be made available to you when you start the course. We do not expect you to read everything on this list, but you will benefit from reading as many of the suggested texts as you are able.

Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application.
