Supplementary costs

There are some additional costs that you may incur during the course of your study. Course required reading is available through the University's library service. Comprehensive resources are available to support your course work through text books in the library, electronic resources and the library's subsidized inter-loan service. You may wish to supplement these resources with self-selected book purchases. The amount will vary depending on your choice of assignment and the availability of books in the library or through second hand book sales run by our Student Union. We recommend you budget between £200 to £300 a year.
