Have to pay for extra time


======= Date Modified 28 Mar 2011 09:56:05 =======

I was told the other day that if the PhD theses isn't completed in the time allocated, then the student has to start paying for each extra week or month that they run over. Have I heard correctly?
Thanks :-)

it depends on the uni. I have to pay £400 ish for my whole writing up year. If you're not writing up by the time your funding finishes, at my uni the fees are about £3,700!

My hubby has had to pay £40 per month at his uni for every month after his funding finished - he owes about £1k now :-(


Wow so it could really start to add up then. Writing up must be stressful enough with out the additional worry of fees etc.

Thanks for your reply!
