There may be a cost for internet / wireless connection if you have your own Computer. Please check with your College.

In addition the following is relevant to students taking the MML degree course:

Year Abroad costs: detailed information is provided by the Year Abroad Office prior to the period of compulsory study abroad. According to Government guidance, all UK/EU students on the Year Abroad are required to pay only 15% of the UK Composition Fee. Overseas students pay 50% of the overseas student fee. Tuition fees at partner universities are exempted; Tuition fees at approved institutions are reimbursed by the Faculty. However, all students will remain personally responsible for all travel and living expenses during their Year Abroad, regardless of whether they are studying, volunteering or undertaking work placements.

Non-Compulsory Study Abroad: Although the core element of language immersion is the Year Abroad, students may wish to make use of some of their vacations during the other three years of their degree to travel to the countries where their chosen languages are spoken. Such travel is not a compulsory part of the course, though obviously beneficial in different ways. The cost of such travel is hugely variable, depending on the cost of getting to your destination, on living costs once you have arrived, and on what you choose to do. (Language undergrad abroad, for example, can involve extra expense; however, students who gain temporary paid employment abroad might, at the very least, cover their costs.) Unfortunately, the Faculty will not be in a position to financially support such travel but some colleges may be able to offer grants.
