Tuition fees do not cover membership to clubs or societies.

Accommodation fees

Residence fees are available in the Student Fees handbook. Please be aware that for catering residences, the meal costs should be added to the residence cost.

Miscellaneous fees and levies

Various charges such as society subscriptions, library fines, traffic fines, student-health charges, residence-damage costs and emergency loans may be debited to a student's fees account if they were not settled in the course of the year.

Such charges often appear on accounts late in the year, so it is important to check for these charges before the year-end to ensure acceptance to the next academic year or an invitation to graduate.

Interest

The university charges monthly interest on outstanding balances at 1%#37;. Given that the final fee payment is due on 30 June, interest is charged on 31 July and at the end of each succeeding month.
