Module Fees 2017/18
All astronomy distance learning modules are standard modules with 20 national credits. Details of the University’s Tuition Fee policy, including refunds in case of withdrawal or suspension of studies can be found here.
The module fee does not depend on the module or on the target award (eg BSc (Hons) or University Certificate). However, it does depend on whether the student is classed as a new student or as a continuing student.
A new student is any student who is starting a new award.
In 2017/18 the new student (20-credit) module fee for all new Home, EU and Island and overseas students will be the University’s standard fee for Part Time Distance Learning students:
New students: £1025.
A continuing student is any student who is staying on the same award as the previous year.
1) Continuing students who started their current award in 2016/17:
Continuing students: £1015.
students who started their current award in 2015/16 or before
will pay the same module fee in 2017/18 as they did in 2016/17.
See current student pages for details.
The Course Team has endeavoured to keep its part-time distance learning courses at an affordable level, despite the introduction of fees of roughly £9000 per year for full time undergraduates. We note, for information, that this would correspond to £1500 per module.
1) Students in receipt of the UK state retirement pension are eligible for a 50% reduction in the module fee.
2) Regrettably UCLan is no longer able to offer a fee waiver for UK students in receipt of certain benefits.
