College bills

Any fees due must be paid at the beginning of each Term; this includes any portion of tuition fees for which you are responsible. All undergraduates must pay the Termly rent by the second Wednesday of Michaelmas Full Term and the first Wednesday of Lent and Easter Full Terms. Postgraduate students must make these payments quarterly in advance. Amounts billed during the course of the Michaelmas and Lent Terms will be payable by the first Wednesday following the beginning of Full Term. Amounts billed during the course of the Easter Term will be payable by 31 July, except in your final year when settlement of an estimated bill is a condition which must be met before you can graduate.

If you wish to know how much you have spent in the Catering Department you can check at any of the catering tills or else log into your online catering account. Interest is charged on late payments at the rate of 0.5% per week on the amount owing. Payment may be made by direct debit, cheque, UK debit card or as a transfer directly into the College bank account using the bank details found at the bottom of the College bill.

It is impossible to specify the total cost for any individual student as this can vary widely depending on the subject read and other circumstances. Students from overseas should remember that they will have to pay higher University fees than do students from the United Kingdom and from European Union countries by reason of legislation presently in force.

If, for any reason, you are unable to pay your College bill in full by the specified date you should immediately consult your Tutor who, in some circumstances, may be able to help you by arranging a College grant or by obtaining assistance from certain funds administered by the University. The College reserves the right not to permit any student to return into residence at the beginning of an academic year if the student has not paid all amounts owing directly to the College or amounts which the College collects as agents for the University.

Tuition fee

Undergraduates

The College collects the student contribution towards the annual cost of tuition on behalf of the University. This fee is due in advance at the beginning of each of the three terms on a 25%/25%/50% basis, except for overseas students where the fee is due in one instalment at the beginning of the Michaelmas Term. Home and EU students are referred to the Government's Student Finance website for the most up-to-date information for fee support. For those overseas students starting in October 2019 the fee is set at a fixed annual amount for the duration of the course.

All Home and EU students who are applying to Student Finance for a tuition fee loan, must send a copy of their 'University or College Payment Advice' for 2018/19 to the Tutorial & Admissions Office as soon as they receive it and in any case not later than 30 June 2019 so that the first installment of any tuition fees or other payments due may be billed correctly.

Postgraduates

The College collects the student contribution towards the annual cost of tuition on behalf of the University. One-third of the fee is due in advance at the beginning of each of the three terms, except for overseas students where the fee is due in one instalment at the beginning of the Michaelmas Term. Subsequent fee instalments, together with all other items charged to your account during the previous Term, and any rent payable in advance, will be due on the following dates:

Michaelmas Term: 16 October 2019
Lent Term: 15 January 2020
Easter Term: 22 April 2020

For more information, please email the Bursary. The Bursary is located on B staircase.
