Research Support Fees

Research Support fees (sometimes called Bench fees) are a fee charged to provide funding to cover research-related items/activities which are essential in order to carry out the research. Research Support fees are an annual charge which will apply in addition to the tuition fee in each year of the programme, except the writing up year.

The amount of such charges will be agreed at the outset. For full details of the fees and what they cover view the Policy on Research Support Fees for Postgraduate Research Students (Word doc 25k)
