Residential Fees

Scholarships and Bursaries

2019 Fee Schedule 

Residential Fees are inclusive of all residential facilities and amenities, all meals, academic and pastoral support and IT access. In 2019, all contracts are for 38 continuous weeks, inclusive of the mid-year university holiday period. In direct response to student and family feedback, this new contract replaces the previous 34-week contract that had additional (compulsory) charges.  Three-quarters of rooms will be refurbished before the start of the 2019 Academic Year. Despite these and other significant enhancements and the addition of the four weeks, the College has been able to contain the fee increase for 2019 to a similar level as for 2018.
