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.
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.
Students in receipt of the UK state retirement pension are eligible for a 50% reduction in the module fee (see Appendix 1 in the UCLan Tuition Fee policy document)
Regrettably UCLan is no longer able to offer a fee waiver for UK students in receipt of certain benefits.
