If you're an Essex graduate or studied abroad here and your PhD is your first postgraduate course with us, you could be eligible for our alumni loyalty discount.
If you are studying part-time at twice the standard duration (i.e. 72 months for a PhD) then you will pay half of the relevant fee each year.
We'll assess your fee status when you apply to Essex and you can contact us to enquire about your fee status. If you are successful in gaining an offer, your fee status will be confirmed in your offer letter.

However, if you originally submitted your thesis without using the maximum three terms of ‘completion period’ available to you, you will first be registered for the remainder of your ‘completion period’ term(s) followed by the ‘exceptional extension to maximum period’ for the rest of your referral period.
