Distance learning fees

Fees for the MA in English Language Teaching (by distance study) are charged separately for each year of study and are payable before the start of study. Additional expenses incurred should be minimal, but are likely to include costs for postage/courier services, telephone calls, examination centres, local libraries, purchase of books, photocopying articles from the Library (if requested). Please note that some countries charge import duty for textbooks and cassettes, which students pay.

Tuition fees may be paid by sterling cheque, bank transfer or credit card. If payment is made by cheque or bank transfer, payment may be made in a total of six instalments over the whole course (four instalments for the Diploma, two for the Certificate). If payment is made by credit card, payment can be made in three instalments (i.e. typically, one instalment for each year of study).

Distance study tuition fee rates

Distance Study students pay the current fee rate in the academic year in which they are studying. The fee for the academic year 2010/11 is £380 for 10 credits (subject to confirmation) Typically, fees increase by 3% each academic year. The UK university year starts in October.

Paying for optional modules (Year 2 and Year 3): students are invoiced for three optional modules at a time, charged at the fee rate of the academic year in which payment is made. Students can choose to pay the invoice in two instalments.

A student choosing to attend part of the course full-time at the University of Reading will be charged the appropriate full-time tuition fee for that part. Campus-based students are charged either EU fees or International fees, depending on their fee status. If in doubt about whether you are eligible for EU or International fee status, please contact the Faculty of Arts and Humanities Admissions Office.
