The University reserves the right to take appropriate action in relation to students who have not fulfilled their financial obligations to the University as a result of:
In summary, the process will involve sending an initial warning letter to students in debt. Unless action is taken to clear the amount owed, the University will withdraw the student's Library borrowing rights and access to the University's IT facilities. Students will be warned that these facilities are to be withdrawn in the second warning letter. Unless the debt is cleared following the second warning letter, the student will be required to suspend studies.
Any student who remains in debt from a previous session will not be allowed to enrol at the beginning of a new academic year.
Students will not be examined for completion of their degree programme until all debts are cleared.
Students with debts relating to University accommodation fees are referred to Accommodation Regulations and Procedures, which are distinct from other University debt recovery procedures. Students having difficulty paying residence fees by the due date are advised to contact the Residence Fees Officer in Residential Services as soon as possible (by E-mail, or by telephone on +44 (0)1792 295101).
Limited funds are available from the Money Advice and Support Office for students encountering financial difficulty during an academic year.
