Fees and scholarships
While there are different types of fees depending on factors such as your citizenship status and area of study, they need to be paid by specified dates to ensure you are both properly enrolled and eligible to graduate.
To help stay on top of your University fees, a range of financial assistance options may be available, including scholarships and Government-provided loans.
It’s also worth planning ahead for expenses which generally aren’t included in your fees such as textbooks and course materials, as well as SSAF fees.
Some of the language and jargon used around fees can be confusing, particularly for new students.
If you’re not entirely sure what the terms mean, you can always check them against our lists of common University jargon.
