The academic year is split into two half-year study sessions, each containing 20 weeks of learning. You will select and pay for the modules you wish to study in advance of each study session.
You can register for a maximum of two full modules per study session, totalling 4 full modules per academic year. We encourage students to study and examine at least three to four full modules per academic year.

- The fee levied by your local examination centre to cover their costs
- A resit fee for any modules you may need to resit
- For non-UK residents, local VAT, Goods and Services Tax (GST) or any other sales tax payable by the student in their country of residence will be added to the fees during the payment process. Read more about GST on the University of London website

Funding and Financial assistance
There are a number of options available for students who require financial assistance, including:
If you know that you will require financial assistance to undertake your programme of study, you should apply for funding as early in advance of your registration date as possible. Scholarship opportunities are limited and are very competitive.
If you are applying for an education loan as a UK resident, you do not need a confirmed place in the programme to apply.
If you are a US citizen or eligible non-citizen, you do not qualify for federal student aid or military education benefits for these programmes due to the online format.
