This refund policy applies to all Evening Degree students.

Withdrawals

All Evening Degree students considering withdrawing from their course should discuss the matter with the Lifelong Learning Co-ordinator in the first instance. Students must then follow the proper withdrawal procedure through the Registry Officer (Student Support).

Evening Degree students will be eligible to receive a refund of tuition fees as follows:

First Semester

Students who withdraw in the first four weeks of the first semester will be entitled to a full refund of tuition fees.

Students who withdraw after the first four weeks of the first semester will be liable for tuition fees for that semester.

Second Semester

Students who withdraw in the first four weeks of the second semester will be entitled to a full refund of tuition fees for that semester.

Students who withdraw after the first four weeks of the second semester will be liable for tuition fees for that semester.

No refund of fees will be made to students who leave without the permission of the Pro Dean of the appropriate Faculty.

Notes

If you are entitled to a refund, the calculation will be based on what you have paid in tuition fees less what you are due to pay.

The following four examples show different credit levels for illustration only:

  1. Withdrawing within the first four weeks of the first semester

    A student taking 80 credits (40 credits in the first semester and 40 credits in the second semester) would be eligible for the tuition fees of 80 credits to be refunded.

  2. Withdrawing after the first four weeks of the first semester but before second semester

    A student taking 60 credits (30 in the first semester and 30 credits in the second semester) would be eligible for the tuition fees of 30 credits of the second semester to be refunded.
