Tuition fees and refunds

Tuition fees and refunds

Interrupting, retaking in attendance, transferring or withdrawing from your course may affect your tuition fee liability. How much tuition fee you are liable for depends on when you interrupt, transfer or withdraw and when you resume your studies

The information below is taken from QMUL Tuition Fee Regulations

Withdrawal/Interruption/Transfer date

Tuition Fee liability

Student who withdraws, interrupts or transfers before the first day of the beginning of semester 2

25% of the annual tuition fee

Student who withdraws, interrupts or transfers before the start of the revision period

50% of the annual tuition fee

Student who withdraws, interrupts or transfers after the start of the revision period

100% of the annual tuition fee

 

Resumption date

100% of the annual tuition fee

Student who resumes on the first day of Semester 2

75% of the annual tuition fee

50% of the annual tuition fee

If you owe tuition fees to QMUL at the point of interruption or withdrawal, you become liable to pay these straight away.

If you interrupt your studies, if you have paid more tuition fees than you are liable for, these will not normally be refunded. Instead they will be retained by QMUL until you resume studies.

If you interrupt or withdraw from your studies and you are getting a Tuition Fee Loan from SFE, if your interruption or withdrawal date means that you are liable for less than the full annual tuition fee, it is advisable to contact the QMUL Fees Office (fees@qmul.ac.uk) at the end of the academic year to check that they have received the correct amount of Tuition Fee Loan from SFE. Sometimes SFE mistakenly pays the full Tuition Fee Loan, even though you have a reduced liability, so it is important to check this and to contact SFE if they have overpaid and ask them to take back the overpayment from QMUL.

If you resume your studies in Semester 2, remember to apply for the correct amount of Student Finance Tuition Fee Loan from SFE. Check with the QMUL Fees Office what amount of tuition fee you will be liable for and state this amount in your Student Finance application.

Exam re-sit fees

There is no charge for re-sit exams. You will be automatically registered for re-sits if you are required to sit them. If you don’t feel able to do your re-sits, for example because of ill-health, you need to submit a claim for Extenuating Circumstances; if you don’t do this, and you don’t sit your exams, or you just opt out of the re-sit via MYSIS, you will have a failed attempt.
