In August 2021, The Open University published its new Postgraduate Research Students (Affiliated Research Centre) Fee Rules 2021/22 for the first time.
This document sets out the University’s policy on setting and charging fees for postgraduate research students registered through an Affiliated Research Centre. It covers fee liability, including Upgrade reworks, write up, continuation and resubmission fee policy. There are also sections on grant extensions, refunds, debt and support for study related costs.
There have been no policy changes since the previous version published.
Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
