A student who is permitted to transfer to a degree from the Diploma in Economics or Diploma in Social Sciences will not normally be required to pay a new registration fee for the degree, but will be required to pay the appropriate continuing registration fee.
A student who is permitted to proceed from an individual course to a degree or diploma will be required to pay the relevant registration fee and the relevant continuing registration fee and examination fees for the remainder of the degree or diploma.
A student who is granted permission to transfer their registration to another programme of study shall be required to pay the relevant fees for the programme concerned. Any additional fee payable shall be at the discretion of the University. Any refund of fees already paid will be subject to the conditions set out below.
A student who is permitted to cancel their registration and register afresh for another programme of study will be required to pay the relevant fees for that programme. Any refund of fees will be subject to the refund policy.
A student who is permitted to renew their registration when the first period of registration expires will be required to pay a further full registration fee. If the programme of study is being phased out, the registration fee will be a proportion of the full registration fee, depending on the number of years remaining before the last examination for the programme concerned. In addition to the registration fee, all students will be required to pay, as applicable, the appropriate continuing registration fee, under the Regulations in force at that time.
Students can request a cancellation of any service and a full refund of the corresponding fees paid to the University by sending a request in writing (by email, fax or post) that is received by the University within seven working days of the original request for the service.
After the seven working day period described in 10.9, application handling fees, APL application fees and examination entry fees are not refundable. Examination entry fees cannot be transferred from one examination to another.
After the seven working day period described in 10.9, registration and continuing registration fees are not refundable except in the most exceptional circumstances. In these cases, a proportion of the registration and any continuing registration fees which have been paid may be refunded at the discretion of the University, provided that:
- the application is made within two years of the effective date of registration
- the student has not already entered an examination
- any required medical or other evidence is submitted.
In the event that a decision is taken by the University to withdraw a programme, any applicant who has not yet accepted an offer will be given a full refund of all fees within 30 days of their request for a refund. All registered students will be permitted to complete the programme according to the regulations on the notice period that apply for withdrawal of all University of London International Programmes.
See Important information in the Programme Specification and Regulations.
A student who registers for a programme for the first time may request a full refund of any fees paid for that programme for a period of up to 3 weeks after the publication of new Programme Specification and Regulations that will apply for the academic year in which the student initially registered to commence study.
In the event that there is a maximum quota of students for admission to a programme, registration fees and course fees (if applicable) will be refunded in full if a student attempts to register and is unable to do so because the quota for that year is full.
