Financial Difficulties

If you are having, or anticipate having, any problems making fees payments, please get in touch with us sooner rather than later. We can help you put together a bespoke payment plan with our Finance Service Centre, and/or discuss the possibility of suspending your studies for one academic term, or a full academic year.

We would advise you to check out the financial implications before requesting a suspension as you may not be entitled to any fee reductions.

Failure to make a fees payment, or make alternative arrangements for payment, may result in your case being passed to the university’s Credit Control Team. Such action may result in sanctions being applied to your University account or in some cases a suspension of studies where no fees payment is forthcoming.

If you are in financial difficulties, you can also contact the Faculty’s Student Support Officer, as above, for general advice and guidance.

Student Support Officer Statement of Service

Suspension/Withdrawal from studies

If for any reason you would like to temporarily suspend your studies, or would like to formally withdraw from the programme, please contact the Programme Leader. You will need to confirm your intention to suspend or withdraw in writing (by letter or e-mail), and complete a short, electronic declaration form before your request can be officially implemented. You can request to suspend for one full academic term or one full academic year at a time.

If you decide to suspend your studies mid-term you will be expected to return at the same point the following academic year. If you return earlier additional fees will be charged.

We would advise you to check out the financial implications before requesting a suspension/withdrawal as you may not be entitled to any fee reductions.

All students will need to formally notify the university of their withdrawal – students who leave without formally withdrawing may continue to be billed for fees and/or referred to the Credit Control Team for recovery of such fees, which may incur additional cost to you.
