Students receiving a full or partial fee waiver will be expected to:
Undertake your research degree on a full-time or part-time basis. If you study full-time, you will need to dedicate 35 hours per week to your degree and must not also be working full-time. If you study part-time, you should expect to dedicate 17.5 hours per week to the degree.
Contribute 80 hours per year (pro rata for those on partial fee waivers) of activities to support areas such as teaching, research, recruitment activity, or administration. Students wishing to teach will need first to complete the University of Huddersfield Teaching Assistant Preparation Programme (TAPP), as per the teaching policy. No payment will be made for designated fee-waiver tasks.
Live a commutable distance from campus and be on campus regularly in order to be an active member of the School’s research community. Candidates expecting to register and study remotely, from a non-commutable distance, are not eligible; those who receive a waiver and subsequently choose to work at a distance will need to pay for the remainder of their fees at the standard rate.
Regularly attend and participate in research seminars, training, conferences, and events within the School as appropriate.
Students are encouraged to design a MA / PhD project that can be completed in standard time; any fee waiver discount applies only to standard time.
