Student Finance Guide

Further Information

Withdrawing from your course

All students considering withdrawing/intermitting from their course should discuss the matter with their personal tutor or student adviser in the first instance. Students must then follow the proper withdrawal procedure through their academic school.

Tuition fees

If you have paid your tuition fees, upon withdrawal, you may be entitled to a refund based on the following rules of withdrawal.

For undergraduate students funded by the Student Loans Company:

The Student Loans Company has three triggers points (at the start of each term) which determine whether fees will be paid. If you are in attendance on any of these trigger dates your fees will be paid to us in full for that particular term.

For all other students:

Fees will be reduced on the number of months completed, pro-rated against the total months allocated to the year.
