Examples of additional fees are:
- Material Fees - Material fees are to cover the costs for materials used by or for students during the delivery of a subject. In many cases the full costs are effectively subsidised by the Institute, so the material fee charged to the student may be lower than the true full cost of the materials used.
It is important to note that not all costs covered by material fees may be directly visible to students - however, students should be aware that delivery of their subjects can require resources specific to that subject which are not covered by general student fees. Some examples of such items are the purchase and maintenance of dedicated equipment, software licenses, printing, subscription fees, information service access costs, specialist training material licences, guest lecturers and some excursions.
