03/11/2014 03:32 Printing Costs No £ Variable Yes Via eBart, the University covers costs associated with printing assessments. The one exception to this is posters, which the students have to pay for themselves. Although the cost of these assignments are not advertised, students will be aware of module assessments when picking modules; thus, they will know which modules have posters and, therefore, may have associated printing costs. Lecturers provide almost all reading materials in electronic format so that students can read the literature via their computers. It is up to students themselves to decide whether they need to print these items out; if they do, they must bear the cost of printing.

03/11/2014 03:32 Travel to Placements No £ Variable No Although this cost is not advertised prior to application, it is advertised prior to departure for placements, and prior to final-year dissertation research.

Students are also able to borrow equipment that can improve their field course experience (e.g., binoculars). Prior to selection of field course modules, students are provided with information about what equipment will be needed, so they have a chance to opt out of field courses that benefit from possession of equipment that the students do not already have and cannot purchase.
