Tuition Fee Charging and Refunding Policy 2017-18

Further to DMU’s enrolment processes (whether online on via paper form), under the terms and conditions of enrolment, all students agree to the following:

  • Liability for all tuition fees incurred over the duration of their programme of study, in whole or in part, and that if the student or their sponsor fails to pay their tuition fees in a timely manner that DMU reserves the right to terminate the student’s studies.
  • Understanding that DMU reserves the right to take legal action against the student in order to recover any debt.
  • Understanding that should a student wish to leave DMU before the end of their programme of study, the student is responsible for contacting the University to terminate (or interrupt) their enrolment and that the student is liable to incur costs equating to up to a full year of tuition fee if their registration is terminated by DMU on behalf of the student.
  • Requests to interrupt or withdraw enrolment are not confirmed until the university has approved the request; the date of interruption or withdrawal used for charging and refund purposes will be the date that the university has confirmed the request.

Taking out a tuition fee loan

You will be formally liable for your total tuition fee from the start date of your course/first day of term. We recognise, however, that where you have taken out a tuition fee loan, payments will be made by the Student Loan Company on your behalf, shortly after the dates shown below.

Tuition fee liability – NHS courses

The government has changed the way students studying nursing, midwifery and speech and language therapy courses are funded.

 

For all students attending university from September 2017 onwards NHS bursaries will no longer be available. Instead, you will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs from Student Finance England. Students studying an NHS accredited course beginning September 2017 and March 2018 will have access to the standard student support package of tuition fee loans and support for living costs. Term dates and tuition fee liability points will be different for NHS accredited courses – the table below sets out the liability points for these courses, depending on the intake of your course.

 After Monday 16 October 2017, once a term has started, you are liable for the full fee for that term, even if you withdraw or interrupt your course during the term.

Please note: If you agree to take out a Tuition Fee Loan, but then change your mind, you will be responsible for paying the Loan amount for up to the latest point of liability (first day of each term), back to the Student Loans Company.

Please ensure you have read the terms and conditions of your student funding package. The processing and awarding of your student package is totally independent of the university. Any student funding payments made to you/on your behalf are made in line with your loan agreement with the Student Loans Company.

If your course has a non-standard start date (i.e. a date other than Monday 2 October 2017), you have 14 days (10 working days) from the standard enrolment day for your cohort (this can be clarified by the faculty) during which you can officially withdraw from your course or interrupt your studies and a fee will not be levied. Different tuition fee liability points may also apply. Contact sas@dmu.ac.uk for more information.

Paying your own fees

Your total tuition fee for 2017/8 will be charged from the start date of your course/first day of term. If you have chosen not to take out a tuition fee loan, you should pay your fees in full at the start of term. If you are unable to pay in full you must either set up an agreed instalment plan for the full fee or pay a minimum of 50 per cent by 31 October 2017 and set up an agreed instalment plan for the balance. For details please contact income@dmu.ac.uk for details.
