Accreditation is valid for three years. The application fee for the initial application assessment and subsequent revalidations will be based on the cost to TOPRA of assessing the application and visiting the university. This fee will be calculated individually for each university and is available on request.
Once the programme is accredited an annual fee is payable as follows:
- Degree programme annual fee: £2,000 (+ VAT at the applicable rate)
- Module accreditation annual fee: £1,000 (+VAT at the applicable rate)
Changes to the programme during the accreditation period
Accredited institutions will be obliged to inform TOPRA of changes to their programme. Minor changes to the programme will incur no additional fee. Review of major changes will incur a charge of £250 (+ VAT at the applicable rate).
TOPRA reserves the right to require a full re-accreditation application if the changes are deemed to be substantial enough to require this.
