See Glossary for the definition of 'effective date of registration'.
A student registered for the BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies from 1 March 2011 and prior to 30 December 2011 will be given an effective date of registration of 30 November 2011.
Students should note that prior to the 2011-12 Programme Specifications and Regulations coming into effect, a student who registered for the BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies was automatically given an effective date of registration as follows:
1 September, if registering between 1 September and 31 September
1 January, if registering between 1 January and 30 April
1 May, if registering between 1 May and 31 August
As from when the 2011-12 Programme Specifications and Regulations come in to effect, all students' effective date of registration will be 30 November 2011
A student whose effective date of registration is 30 November in any year will be permitted to enter for examinations in the following year for the first time.
Period of registration
As indicated in the Programme Specification, the maximum and minimum periods of registration from the student's effective date of registration will be:
|BA degree Spanish and Latin American Studies||Three years||Eight years*|
*Important note: Students currently registered on the programme should note that their maximum period of registration may be shorter than the standard eight years given from the effective date of initial registration, due to the programme closure. Therefore, if your period of registration was due to expire after 2015, please note that this date has had to be brought forward - your registration will now expire on 31 August 2015. However, if your period of registration was due to expire before 2015, the date will remain the same.
No reduction in the minimum period of registration will be permitted.
A student who has not completed all the requirements of the BA degree Spanish and Latin American Studies within the maximum period of registration may apply to renew their registration for a further full maximum period for the programme for which they are registered*
*See important note above.
Renewal of registration is at the discretion of the University, which will take into account the progress made by the student during registration. If the student's application is approved, the registration will be subject to the regulations that apply at the time of renewal and they will be required to pay the registration fee and any other fees applicable.
Confirmation of continuing study
To maintain their registration with the University, a student must confirm their continuing study annually, and pay the appropriate fees by the given deadlines.
The continuing registration form is sent out annually to students.
See www.londoninternational.ac.uk for the deadline by which the continuing registration fee is due for the University of London International Programmes.
A student's registration will lapse if the continuing registration fee is not paid by the given deadline for the respective programme. A student whose registration has lapsed will not receive new study materials, nor be allowed to access the portal, nor be allowed to enter for an examination.
A student who wishes to reinstate a lapsed registration may, at the discretion of the University, either:
- pay all outstanding continuing registration fees and complete the continuing registration form and receive the remaining period of registration, or
- cancel their registration, pay a new registration fee and receive a new maximum period of registration.
At its discretion, the University may decide on which of these options a student must take if they wish to continue their studies. In either case, the results of all previous examinations will remain valid.
Cancellation of registration
A student may cancel their registration at any time. Fees will not be refunded except in exceptional circumstances.
See section 10 regarding refunds.
A student who has been registered with the University may apply to cancel their registration and register again for a programme in the same subject or field of study, without carrying forward their previous record, including attempts at examinations, if:
- They have never attempted an examination
- They have not attempted an examination in the two years prior to the request.
All applications for cancelling a registration and registering again for a programme will be considered on an individual basis. Permission to re-register in these circumstances will be given at the discretion of the University and will be subject to any further conditions specified in either these Regulations or by the University.
A student who is permitted to cancel their registration and re-register for a programme in the same subject or field of study under the above paragraph will be required to pay a new registration fee and will receive a new registration period of eight years. The previous period of registration will be considered to have lapsed. A student will only be able to re-register for a programme without carrying forward their previous record on one occasion.
Section 10 gives refund information.

An applicant who has previously received a University of London award, or whose registration with the University was terminated because they had exhausted the permitted number of attempts at an examination, may apply to register again as an International Programmes Student for a programme of study in a different subject or field of study.
