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 2015)

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 11 January 2016  50%
 Resumption of Spring Semester following the Vacation Period  11 April 2016  100%



The dates of the University’s Semesters and Vacations are available on the website:
http://www.qub.ac.uk/directorates/AcademicStudentAffairs/AcademicAffairs/SemesterDates/

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 2015-16.

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.
