When you move into thesis awaited status you will be required to pay a continuation fee for each academic session until you submit your thesis. The continuation fee for the 2019-20 academic session is £228 and the continuation fee for the 2020-21 academic session will be £240. This fee is to cover administrative costs and access to University resources (e.g., IT and Library services).
You are liable for the continuation fee as soon as you transfer to thesis awaited status. If you transfer at a time other than at the beginning of the academic session (i.e. October) you will be charged a pro-rata fee until the following October.
There will be no refund if you submit your thesis during the course of the academic session as many of the costs will have been incurred already and some will continue throughout the examination period.
Postgraduate Researchers will remain in thesis awaited status after the submission of their thesis to the conclusion of their research studies but at this stage are not required to pay a continuation fee.
