5. Tuition Fees
It is current University policy to reduce a student’s tuition fees by the cost of any modules exempted via an Accreditation of Prior Learning (however, see 4.2 above for charges for APcL/APeL applications). The University reserves the right to review this policy at any time. If an applicant’s Accreditation of Prior Learning claim is successful their tuition fees will be reduced by the cost of any exempted modules.
However, if the applicant is awaiting the outcome of an Accreditation of Prior Learning claim at the point of enrolment, they are required to pay the full tuition fee on time. If they are subsequently awarded credit towards a degree they will receive a refund for the cost of any exempted modules.
Academic Services (Student Finance) will calculate any reduction in tuition fees after a decision letter has been sent to the applicant by the Admissions Office and their student record will be adjusted accordingly.
