If a student withdraws from the University, any refund of fees that have been initially paid by a sponsor or sponsors will be repaid to the sponsor or sponsors.
Any refund of fees that have been paid by the student will be repaid to the student.
Withdrawal for reason of Examination Results
A student who decides to withdraw in the light of their first semester results will be treated as if the withdrawal had taken place between the end of the first semester and start of the second semester.
This is because the University recognises that results can only be published part way through the second semester and that this therefore delays decision-making. A student will normally be expected to provide evidence that the reason for withdrawal is related to their results, and therefore the timing of publication of the results. The best way in which such evidence can be provided is a note from the personal supervisor indicating that the student has discussed the results with the supervisor and considered other options.
For clarity, this means that a student withdrawing due to examination results will be deemed to have left at the end of the first semester.
