It may be necessary for some students to complete a DBS check in order to carry out their research, depending on the research areas that they choose to pursue for their thesis. If the chosen research area does require a DBS check then the student will be liable for the cost (£71 in 2017).

More information on PhD costs and sources of funding can be found on our central University webpage.
