The following costs should be used as a guide only

All students

Congregation ceremonies

When you graduate, we will invite you to your graduation ceremony. It is free to attend for you and two guests. To take part you will need to pay to hire an academic robe to wear during the ceremony.

Library overdue charges

Overdue charges apply to all library loans to encourage you to return any resources you borrow on time. Costs vary depending on the type of loan, eg long or short loan, and the resource involved, eg book, student text collection, e-book reader or laptop.

We use the income from overdue charges to buy new books requested by students, and extra copies of those in heavy demand.

Keys and smartcards

When joining the University you will be required to make a deposit for any keys and smartcards used throughout your studies.

Late fees and fines

You may incur fines or late payment fees during your studies, if you make late payments or register late for your course. Please visit our Student Wellbeing website for further information.
