Sanctions for the non-payment of debts to the University

The University’s policy where the student ends the academic year in debt for tuition fees is to:

  • bar the student from returning in the following year.
  • bar the student from attending his/her Awards Ceremony.
  • refuse to confer a University award.
  • withhold examination results.
  • withdraw StudyNet to prevent a student from accessing StudyNet material, submitting assignments or registering for Awards Ceremonies.
  • not examine Research students.

The University may take further action where appropriate.

The University will not normally bar the student from attending re-sit examinations, provided that he/she has arranged with the Student Finance team, or the Research department, as appropriate, to pay the fee or other debt.
