Withdrawal from PGR course - reclamation of maintenance watch

    • Thread Starter

    Dear forum,

    I'm a PhD student at one of the universities in England receiving a faculty scholarship. I'm currently considering withdrawing from the program and am concerned about the amount of fees I would have to pay back.

    My scholarship conditions say:
    "The maintenance award will be paid quarterly in advance into your bank account"
    "If you withdraw from this studentship, we will reclaim any overpayments of maintenance".

    I wonder what the last condition actually means. If I leave, say, after the 2nd of 3 months of the aforementioned period for which I was paid in advance, should I pay back the fees for the whole 3 months or for the last remaining month only? Should I formally withdraw only by the end of the said 3-month period then?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi bsharchilev

    I would advise you to speak directly with the awarding body who provided the scholarship.
