Fees Refund and Charging Policy

Fees for the academic year are payable in full at enrolment and/or in two equal instalments. If you withdraw from your programme or take a leave of absence your enrolment record will be amended according to the date on which the Withdrawal or Leave of Absence Form is received in the Registry.  Any change in tuition fee liability will be calculated from the amended enrolment end date for the academic year. Fees up to the withdrawal or leave of absence date will be charged. The Withdrawal and Leave of Absence Forms can be down-loaded from SID or are available from your Faculty Office.  Research students should obtain the forms from the Doctoral School. 

The School calculates fee liability per half term pro rata for the first two terms: 

Stage of Withdrawal or Leave of Absence
Charge
Term 1: before reading week 1/6 annual fees
Term 1: during or after reading week 2/6 annual fees
Term 2: before reading week 3/6 annual fees
Term 2: during or after reading week 4/6 annual fees
Term 3 Full year's fees due

Undergraduate and research degree applicants and non-degree applicants who formally decline their offer of a place or apply for deferred entry before enrolment, will be eligible for a refund of any tuition fees paid in advance minus a £50 administration charge.

Applicants for postgraduate Master's programmes and the Graduate Diploma in Economics who have paid the non-refundable postgraduate deposit and formally decline their offer of a place or apply for deferred entry before enrolment, will be eligible for a refund of any tuition fees paid in advance minus the £1000 non-refundable deposit.

If you are an undergraduate and your tuition fees are paid by Student Finance there is a different charging system.

Refunds are paid back to the original payee.  If the original payment was by bank transfer the refund is made to the paying account.  If the original payment was made by debit or credit card the refund is made to the paying card.
