Many modules include excursions in and around London and the costs of these excursions (e.g. entrance tickets) are also included in the tuition fees. There may be additional travel costs on these excursions (the average cost is £20-30 per module). In the unlikely event that additional expenses exceed £30, this will be stated on any offer letters associated with the relevant module.
