Tuition Fee Payment Options

The options for paying tuition fees and charges for the academic year 2016-17 are summarised in the table below. Students must ensure they have made the necessary arrangements to pay their tuition fees and charges at enrolment and regsitration. These payment options are set out in more detail at the following link: Link to payment options.  

The overarching principle, regarding the payment of tuition fees, and other associated charges, is that the student remains liable for the payment.  If the student loan or sponsorship arrangements do not subsequently provide funding, the student will be required to pay all fees and charges personally.

Please note the 25% of Tuition Fees are Non-Refundable following enrolment

Students whose personal contribution is £250 or less, will be required to pay in full on enrolment.

Tuition Fee Liability for Student Withdrawals

Full-time Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students

The date when a student withdraws will affect the level of tuition fees which may be refunded.  Adjustments to tuition fees are calculated with reference to the date of a student's withdrawal from the University, not the last date of attendance. The table below demonstrates how tuition fees are calculated in respect of a withdrawal;


Withdrawal Policy (effective from 1 August 2016)

Attendance/SLC Liability Point Normal Effective Date  Fees due to the University 
 Completion of Enrolment and Registration (non-refundable)*  September/October  25%
 Resumption of Autumn Semester following the Vacation Period January 2017  50%
 Resumption of Spring Semester following the Vacation Period March / April 2017  100%

*The non-refundable percentages of fee will increase at various points during the academic year.

Part-time Undergraduate and Postgraduate Taught Students
Fees for part-time students are calculated by semester.  Further details of the withdrawal and module drop policy, for part-time students, are outlined in Section 4.4.2 of the Student Finance Framework 2016-17.

Postgraduate Research Students
The tuition fee liability for a Postgraduate Research student withdrawal, or a temporary leave of absence, is based on the official date of withdrawal in the academic year, and a refund will be issued, if appropriate.  The tuition fee is calculated for a month, if a student is deemed to be in attendance on, or after, the 5th of that month.
