Extra Costs You May Incur Whilst Studying at MIHE

There are a number of costs you should budget for apart from the obvious cost of tuition fees. You may want to purchase some books relevant to your course which could be costly. You could of course search websites such as Amazon for second hand copies which usually work out a lot cheaper. Occasionally your Module Tutor may organise a field trip and you would have to bear the cost of that.

If you need to photocopy or print anything, you can do this in the library at a cost of 5p per page. Cards for photocopying can be purchased from the machine in the library at £1 a card. Library fines will be incurred if you keep the books longer than the return due date. Standard loan books which are overdue will be charged at 15p a day and short term book loans at 30p per day.

Should you ever need to re-take a module after having failed at the third attempt (and we hope you won’t) you will have to pay £450 to re-take a 15 credit module and £850 to re-take a 30 credit module. Any Masters student who is granted exemption from certain modules because of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) will be charged at £100 for a 15 credit module and £200 for a 30 credit module.


The Institute does not provide accommodation directly. Limited accommodation facilities are provided on the campus by the Markfield Conference Centre. You will need to contact them directly on 01530 244944 to make arrangements if you wish to stay on campus. The charges are £180 per month (for long term stays, min. 3 months) including water, gas and electricity for a single room with shared washroom facilities. There are some limited en suite rooms available at £240 a month for long-term stays. If you do not wish to stay on campus for the full semester, and just want to stay for a night or two every so often, the cost will be £15 per night for a single room (shared washroom) or £20 for an en suite room. If you rent property in Leicester you will pay considerably more and will also have to allow for all utility bills and travel costs.

Food Costs

How much you spend on food is really up to the individual but as an approximate guide you should allow between £30 and £40 a week. (Of course if you eat out or order in takeaway this amount will increase). In Markfield village, about a mile from MIHE you will find a co-operative store, a post office, a chemist, two hairdressers and various other small shops. There is also a fish and chip shop and an Indian takeaway. For halal meat supplies you will have to go into Leicester where there are plenty of halal butchers particularly in the Highfields area.
