Fee, Liability and Instalment Dates

When you register on your course you are responsible for ensuring the University receives payment for the tuition fee. Where you have applied for a student loan you must ensure your application is complete. If we do not receive payment of the fees from Student Finance you will become personally liable for the payment of those fees.

If you have not applied for funding or you are not eligible for funding, you must ensure that all tuition fees are paid to the University.

If your personal sponsor has not paid you will become personally liable for the payment of those fees.

You will need to ensure that you complete the instalment agreement form with the correct start dates, which you will find below.

Cooling off period

Buckinghamshire New University allows a 14-day cooling off period for all Programmes of Study along with any Programmes of study which are considered either Distance Learning or Flexible Distributed Learning. This allows 14 days for the Student to change their mind about their chosen course and formally Withdraw without financial penalty. The 14-day period starts from the date the student signs their enrolment form; ‘day one’ or the start date of the course which includes Fresher’s week for new starters, whichever is later.

For online or remote enrolment this is taken as the date it is confirmed online or the form is received by Bucks New University.

To apply the student must formally withdraw from their course within this 14-day period. Please refer to the Interruption, Withdrawal or Transfer of Studies Procedure for further information on how to do this.

If the student cancels their contract in accordance with the previous section, we will reimburse all payments which have made in respect of the cancelled contract. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay using the same means of payment the student used for their initial transaction.
Where a student applied and received their student loan, the University will inform the Student Loans Company of the overpayment.
International students should contact the International Office for advice.

Withdrawing, suspending or deferring - UK/EU undergraduates

If you leave during your study, we calculate your fees based on the date on your leavers form and not your last date of attendance. We will charge you fees for every term that you attended the University, in line with tuition fee loan dates set by Student Finance. If you leave in term one, two or three, we will charge you the following:

  • Term one: 25% fees
  • Term two: 50% fees
  • Term three: 100% fees

Returners or students re-sitting will also be liable for tuition fees in line with tuition fee loan dates set by Student Finance.

  • Term one, two and three (full year): 100% fees
  • Term two and three (January returner): 75% fees
  • Term one only: 25% fees
  • Term two only: 25% fees
  • Term three only: 50% fees
