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. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).
Residence Abroad Support We offer dedicated financial support packages of up to £2,000 for residence abroad students, based on household income. You will be automatically assessed for this, based on your Student Finance finance assessment - you just need to make sure you apply for a financial assessment in the academic year in which your residence abroad will take place.
RWS Brode Scholarship You may be eligible for this scholarship if you fulfil the following conditions:
- Your qualifications were achieved at a state-funded school in the UK
- your total household income does not exceed £60K (as verified by the Student Loan Company)
- You achieve high marks in your A-levels (or equivalent qualifications), usually AAB or above

You simply need to make sure you allow the University access to your records when applying for your Student Loan (we cannot otherwise assess your eligibility).
