Q. How much will I be charged if I interrupt my study?
If I interrupt my studies are there any financial implications to consider?
The calculation of how much you will be charged if you interrupt your studies is dependent upon how you fund your course, how you study (e.g. Full Time or Part Time) and the level of your programme.
Your tuition fee will be recalculated from the time that you registered with the University, taking into account whether you are Student Finance Funded by SLC, sponsored by your employer, sponsored by the NHS or are a self-funding student.
Please note that if you have an entitlement to any Scholarships, Bursaries or any other University discounts then these will be pro-rota’d in line with our re-calculations. If you decide to interrupt and formally request this after teaching week 2, you will be liable for the tuition fees up to the point you have requested your period of interruption.
Further information is contained within the Key Facts about Fees section, located on the student channel.
Students who have secured a Postgraduate Loan will be considered as a self-paying student as the loan is paid directly to you, it will be your responsibility to ensure that your funding is up to date when considering an interruption of study.
If you are an Undergraduate student and Student Finance Funded (SLC) then the re-calculations will be dependent upon the three liability dates;
1st Liability 25% charge of tuition fee
2nd Liability 50% charge of tuition fee
3rd Liability 100% charge of tuition fee
