Refunds of Fees 2019-20

 

These are Fee Regulations which describe the circumstances in which refunds of fees may be made.

1.1

If you withdraw or interrupt your studies you will be liable for fees as specified in the table in section 1.3 below. If you or your sponsor has already paid more than this, then (subject to the University Refund Policy) the excess will be refunded to the fee payer on request. 

1.2

For the purposes of these refunds, the date of withdrawal is defined as the last attendance date noted by the appropriate member of staff following the completion and sign-off of the withdrawal process. Notification by any other means (eg verbal communication with a Personal Tutor, Module Convener or School Administrator) will not constitute full withdrawal or interruption of studies and will not affect your fee liability. You will find the relevant forms in the Quality Manual.

1.3

If you have completed academically (ie all teaching sessions and examinations for the course have taken place) no refund will be due regardless of your withdrawal date.

1.4

The table below gives the fee liability if you withdraw or interrupt your studies. In all cases the dates of terms and semesters are those published on the University website regardless of the particular dates of study on any course.
