*Per annum charges are based on the maximum duration of the programme outlined in the Registration Periods table below and the expectation that in the final year, PGRs will move into the ‘Completion Year’ in which no fee will be charged.  By this year, PGRs are expected to have completed their primary area of research and submit the final thesis for examination and complete the formal examination process.  

Early completion will still be liable for the full award rate.

**PGRs who do not submit their final thesis for examination within the maximum registration period will need to request an extension to their registration period.  Extensions will be granted for a maximum of one year. The fee will be applied if a PGR fails to submit their final thesis for examination within 4 weeks of the extended period of registration.

The normal periods of study starting from initial enrolment, to expected completion of the formal examination process, for the various research degrees are:
