Pro-Rata Refund

A pro-rata refund is available if the student withdraws for reasons of personal circumstances that are beyond their control, namely:

  3. Other exceptional reasons at the discretion of the accounts officer. Note: In all of the above cases, relevant documentation is required, example medical certificate

While we appreciate that changes can occur in student’s lives, either financially or personally, no circumstances will constitute any loss of responsibility towards the good financial status of your enrolment.
