Robinson College is committed to ensuring that students from across the country are able to participate in our events. To that end, this page contains information on travel expenses for students who are involved with any in-person event held at and organised by the College.
Please note that travel costs will only be refunded when trips are made via non-First Class public transport. This is usually trains but can also be coaches, and we will expect students to take off-peak journeys when event times allow. In cases where flying would be more appropriate, this can be discussed with the student.
We will not refund taxi costs or private car mileage. We will not usually refund transport costs to, from, or between main legs of public transport (e.g. tube fare; bus fare to and from stations etc.) unless this is prohibitive.
Please see the end of this page for further information on how to make a claim.
The College will cover full travel expenses for students who meet one of the following criteria:
If you are eligible for full expense coverage, the College will book your travel directly. We will confirm journey times with you, and then forward on tickets or ticket collection details once they have been purchased.
The College will cover 50% of travel costs for students who meet one of the following criteria:
If you are eligible for partial expense coverage, you will need to purchase your tickets yourself and then claim reimbursement. Reimbursements are processed on the 20th of each month; this money is usually paid by the beginning of the following month. We suggest you contact us to check that your journey is valid for reimbursement before buying tickets.
If you or your family are unable to afford the up-front cost of the journey, please have a parent/guardian or school teacher email email@example.com to discuss further.
If your travel costs will exceed £100 and you meet the above criteria, please contact us directly.
If you have a confirmed place on a Robinson College event and meet the eligibility criteria for partial or full expense coverage, you must email us directly to request this.
