Additional expenses

Clinical placement travel costs

Although there are currently small bursaries available to help you with the travel costs associated with clinical placements, this may not cover the full cost of your travel expenses to and from your clinical placements.

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).
