    Leaving or interrupting your studies

    See our Welfare Advice Guide: Change of Circumstances: Interrupting, Transferring/Repeating studies

    Withdrawal

    Tuition fee charges are determined on the basis of enrolment status and not actual attendance. This means that if you stop attending, but do not formally withdraw or interrupt you will be liable for tuition fees until the point in time that you officially notify the University.

    If you decide to withdraw from a course you must notify UniHelp in writing of your decision.  In the absence of written notification of withdrawal to UniHelp you shall be assumed to be in attendance and as such liable for the payment of tuition fees for the academic year.

    It is important that you are aware of the financial implications of withdrawing during the course of the academic year.

    Exceptions

    International students may be required to pay a non-refundable deposit (NRD) to secure a place; these deposits will only be refunded in the event that your visa application is refused.  Where the value of a NRD exceeds the value of charges incurred under the above withdrawal policy then the NRD will be the amount charged.

    Interruption and Temporary withdrawals

    The withdrawal policy specified above also applies to students who choose to interrupt their studies.

    Where payment has been made in excess of the tuition fee charged (including non-refundable deposits) the overpayment will not be refunded, however the credit balance may be carried forward to be applied against future tuition fee charges.  The credit may be carried forward for up to one academic year.

    Refunds Requests

    Any amounts due to be refunded by the University will only be processed on receipt of a completed Student Refund Request Form, which is available at Unihub.

    If the original payment was made by cash or cheque the refund will be made by BACS/bank transfer.  You are responsible for ensuring that the correct bank details are completed on the form.  The University will not accept any responsibility for payments misdirected as a result of incorrect account details provided on the form.

    If the original payment was made by a debit or credit card the refund will be made to the card used in the original transaction.


    Accommodation Deposits

    Refunds in respect of accommodation deposit payments are made within six weeks of the end of your contract.  In order to aid the refund process we ask that all students in halls of residence supply their bank account details.  When you near the end of your contract you will be asked to complete a Bank Details Request Form available at Unihub. It is important that you advise us if you change your bank account to ensure that payments are made to the correct account.


    Student Loans Company payments

    Where fees have been paid by the Student Loan Company any refunds due will be paid to the Student Loans Company thereby reducing the value of the loan.

    When you have confirmed your fee liability with the University you should log in to your Student Finance England account and reduce, if applicable, your tuition fee loan at: Student Finance and Loans 

    Anti money laundering regulations

    The University will not accept any payment from persons or organisations unless they relate to a valid charge, levied or impending.  This is to comply with UK Money Laundering regulations. Any suspicious payments and or refund requests may be reported to the appropriate regulating body.
