Debts to the University

Outstanding Tuition Fees and Fees Committees

If you owe tuition fees to the University, and you are struggling to pay the required amount it is important that you talk to the University Student Finance department to discuss your circumstances. You will need to come up with a realistic plan to pay the amount owed; otherwise the University may suspend your registration.

The University holds Fees Committees, which investigate the circumstances of students who owe tuition fees. If you are required to attend a Fees Committee, do talk to University Student Finance or the Students’ Union Advice Centre Team

If you are struggling it may be worth checking that you are receiving all the money available to you, help with this can be got from University Student Funding or Students’ Union Advice Centre.

If you have tuition related debts to the University you will not be able to graduate until they have been paid. Also if you do not keep to the agreed plan the University may ask debt collectors to recover it for them.

 Places to get advice on outstanding tuition fees: University Student Finance or Students’ Union Advice Centre.
