Payment of fees
Information for post graduate students on paying fees.
Tuition fees and other programme related fees
Please take the time to read the University's Tuition Fee Policy, as well as information relating to other administrative fees linked to PGR programmes.
Please note that programme fees are subject to annual revision and payment is due in full, at the point of matriculation.
The payment of fees is the responsibility of the student and, in the event of a student’s sponsoring authority (if any) failing to make payment, the student will be held personally liable for payment.
PGR fees beyond the tuition fee period (continuing study/matriculation fee)
Arranging payment of tuition fees
Visit the University Fees team and provide them with a copy of your offer letter
Upon matriculation, all PGR students must visit the University Fees Department and provide them with a copy of their offer letter.
In the case of funded PGR students, this is to ensure the University issues the tuition fee invoice to the School of Informatics, not directly to the student.
If any student is issued with an invoice for tuition fees which they believe the School of Informatics is responsible for paying, the student must immediately react and respond by informing the Informatics Graduate School or CDT Finance Administrator.
If a student who is incorrectly invoiced fails to act promptly and / or fails to respond to contact attempts made by the Income Section, the Income Section will issue a late payment fee, which the student will be personally liable to pay.
4th year matriculation admin fee (5th year for PhD with Integrated Studies)
If and when PhD students enter into their submission year (sometimes referred to as the write up period), they must matriculate and confirm their attendance as usual.
Matriculating for the 4th year of study (or 5th year for PhD with IS programmes) initiates the charging of a matriculation admin charge (currently £190 for 2023/24).
NEW! From 01 Sept 2023 - students who are in receipt of a PhD studentship administered by the School of Informatics will now have their the 4th year matriculation fee paid by their funder.
Self funded and externally funded students remain responsible for paying their 4th year matriculation fee and will be invoiced directly by the University via their MyEd finance channel.
Continuation charges in cases of programme extensions
If students go beyond their maximum period of study and require an extension to their PhD programme, the University requires payment of a continuation charge for the additional time.
This is an annual charge that is pro-rata'd for every authorised month of extension until submission of the thesis.
Students are personally responsible for paying any applicable continuation charges, as these are also not covered by studentships issued by the School.
If you have any questions about your scholarship funding, please contact the IGS or your CDT Administrator.
