Withdrawal and Tuition Fee Refund

Our Tuition Fee Policy applies to all students enrolled on a credit-bearing programme of study at the College.

The purpose of the policy is to explain to students who are considering or have decided to take a leave of absence, withdraw entirely from the course or transfer to another institution how this decision will affect their tuition fees.

The policy provides essential information on tuition fee refunds, which will be implemented in the following circumstances:

  • Student withdrawal from the course
  • Leave of absence, except in cases where a student’s leave of absence ends in the same academic year

Tuition fees will not be refunded in the following instances:

  • The withdrawal of an optional module
  • Leave of absence where a student’s leave of absence ends in the same academic year
