Fees and Finances

The careful management of money during your time as a student is of great importance. The information provided below is designed to give guidance to help with your financial planning during your degree course.  The College seeks to keep charges to students at a reasonable level, and meal charges in particular represent exceptional value for money.

When you begin study at Mansfield an account is opened. This is called a 'battels' account, and it records all the financial transactions between you and the college.
