    Hi guys,

    In 2014 I started Psychology at UCS and started participated classes. Unfortunately I had to drop the Uni after 2 weeks as student finance didnt accept my application.

    Uni asked me to pay £2000 even though I was attending just 2 weeks. Is it legal? I mean I have been paying it for over 2 years now by direct debit, but I dont know if I have to. Anyone had similar situation?

    That sounds awful! Why didn't student finance accept your application?

    if that was the only reason you had to drop out then it is disgraceful! I can't believe your uni didn't do more to help you

    I can't tell you the amount you should have paid but you did enrol and attend classes so it only makes sense that you would have to pay for the tuition that you used. I can't tell you how they calculate how much you owe them tho and if 2000 is correct.

    Every uni can set its own terms & conditions, and you would have agreed to abide by them when you enrolled. It does seem harsh to charge you so much, but we don't know your circumstances. The "cooling off" period where there is no tuition fee liability is usually around two weeks or so, but again, unis can set their own - they can set a shorter period and it also depends how your situation came about.

    There are any number of potential scenarios, but yes, in short, it is legal.
