    Hi There,

    I cannot pay my tuition fee this year and iam not eligible for financial loans /help as iam a mature student.

    Its my final year.

    i just wondered what would happen if i left uni without paying my final years fees. Would the university take legal action?


    many thanks

    If you don't pay and you're an enrolled student, you don't pass the year until you do/can pay, and for your final year this means that you simply don't graduate until you've settled all outstanding costs with the uni.

    They would use debt collection to get the money and if that didn't work, might take you to court.

    You would also not have a degree, too, hindering future prospects. If you're having financial trouble, perhaps you could pay fees in instalments or perhaps go part time for the final year, splitting them in two?

    If you don't pay your fees and settle your debts they simply don't let you graduate, thus no certificate, thus no degree to put on your CV. Thus you've wasted 3 years of your life.

    If you're having trouble paying speak to the university they may be able to arrange that you repay them in instalments.

    I've seen a lot of universities take students to court over unpaid fees.

    So what was the reason you were ineligible? If you want help, you need to tell us.
