UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)


Fees (2023/24)


We only accept payment via our secure Online Store. When you apply during the enrolment period, you will be sent a direct link to pay.

Please note: the cost of textbooks are not included in any course fees. 

Payment for each term is due at the time of enrolment. You will not be permitted to attend classes if payment has not been made during the enrolment period and no place can be reserved for you on a course until you have paid.  If you are a UCL student awaiting a Doc Skills Funding decision which falls after 31st August, please inform us as soon as possible at eveningcourses@ucl.ac.uk

If you pay for a course which has already been oversubscribed, we will offer you a place on our waiting list or a full refund. If no place comes available or you decide at any point you wish to withdraw from the waiting list before a place has been offered then we will give you a full refund. Please note that any refunds given once you've secured a place on the course will be subject to deductions in accordance with our Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Policy (see below).

A cancellation fee applies for withdrawals less than two weeks prior to the commencement of term. No refund will be issued for cancellations made after this point. Please see our T&Cs and Cancellation Policy for more details.
