Information and guidance on fees and funding

Information on the tuition fees currently charged by the university to PhD students can be found on the University's Student Services website.

Research tuition fees

The amount of fees paid depends on whether you are classified as a home or an overseas student. The University's webpages provide information on the criteria used to make this classification.

Home and overseas fee status

Continuation/write up fee

If you go beyond your normal period of registration (3-years) and require more time to write-up your research, a continuation fee is charged instead of a tuition fee. You are required to pay the continuation fee at the beginning of your writing up year and will be refunded any overpayment, on a pro rata basis, if you submit before the end of the 12 month period

There are a number of additional fees which could apply to you throughout your studies depending on your circumstances.

Additional fees

Additional costs

There are no mandatory additional costs that economics PhD students can expect to incur during their course.

During their studies PhD students may want to purchase equipment, present their research at conferences and undertake additional training. 

All PhD students are eligible to apply for funding from the departmental postgraduate research support fund, and may be eligible to apply to other sources of funding, for example, from the Faculty of Social Sciences.
