Leaving the University early

If you leave before the end of your course, we calculate your fees based on your leaving date and not your last date of attendance, unless these dates are the same. 

UK/EU undergraduates and PGCE students

We will charge you fees for every term that you attended the University, in line with tuition fee loan dates set by Student Finance England or your national funding body. If you leave in term one, two or three, we will charge you the following:

  • Term one: 25% fees 
  • Term two: 50% fees
  • Term three: 100% fees. 

International undergraduates

We will charge you fees for every month you were registered at the University. We base our annual fees on nine months of study in one academic year.

Taught and research postgraduates (UK and international)

We will charge you fees for each month you were registered at the University. We base our annual fees on 12 months of study in one academic year.

Full time taught postgraduate students who take temporary leave are charged at the same rate as new students in the year they return. This may lead to an increase in the amount you are required to pay overall.

Research student suspensions

We will not apply an additional charge for a suspension of study agreed by the Graduate Board’s Programmes of Study and Audit Group. However, you may pay a higher rate of tuition when you return from your suspension if the fees have increased. Read about suspension of study on our progress monitoring page.

Accommodation fees 

If you are leaving University accommodation, you must contact Accommodation Services.
