Advice for Part-Time/Distance Learning Students
For Part-Time/Distance Learning Courses, you will be required to pay your tuition fees in advance. The fees will then be refunded by the department on production of a receipted invoice and, in the case of an overseas institution, confirmation of payment from a student’s or parent’s bank account showing the exchange rate used in the transaction.
The amount payable by the Department in terms of part time/distance learning courses is calculated using the following table, subject to an upper limit of £6,000.
|Family* net income||Percentage of fees to be paid by student|
|Exceeds £31,000 – Does not exceed £35,000||25%|
|Exceeds £35,000 – Does not exceed £40,000||50%|
|Exceeds £40,000 – Does not exceed £45,000||75%|
|£45,000 and over||100%|
*Includes the income of the student and contributors
