Battels and Fees

We use the traditional term 'Battels' for College bills covering domestic and other charges that are the student's personal responsibility and that are not included in approved course fees. Your battels bills are issued at the beginning of each term.


Grants and Bursaries

We provide a huge range of bursaries, grants and prizes that may benefit you as an undergraduate and graduate student. If one or more of these would help you with your personal or study circumstances, we encourage you to apply.
