    HI guys, just looking for advice.

    I started my MA in October and I am not enjoying it and i really want to leave. Does anyone know if this means i'll have to give the uni the remainder of the tuition fees? i'm assuming i will, do you think if.'d be able to set up a payment plan as i'll owe them 1250

    thanks

    OP is talking about a Masters degree and the sum quoted is one term of fees.

    Unlike undergrad degrees, each uni can set their own terms and conditions for Masters fee repayment on withdrawal. You need to find the regs for your uni. A repayment plan may be possible, but there's no central set of rules which obliges a uni to do this.

    Would have loved to offer an advice on why you should continue with your MA studies (as you are more than half way done, I believe); I had similar challenges while doing my MSc. I overcame it and I am neck-deep into a PhD. However, if you want to leave the fees procedure varies from Uni to Uni. I suggest you speak to your Uni directly. There could be some discounts, you never know. (As for payment plan, that is very possible).

    Thank's but it's just not for me. I'm not motivated to do any of it and I'm struggling financially despite the post grad loan.

    That is understandable. I'll suggest you contact your University directly. They are aware that not all Masters students will want to complete their courses for various reasons and they are likely to have in place payment options and considerations for these students.

    I was actually considering going in to some further education myself, but then i thought, if i can't get a job now, what use will any further paper qualifiactions serve? I think i am going to be a house husband, hence forth!

    Do you mean you have received tuition but not paid for it due to late payment or due to an arrears payment system?

    Or do you mean that the remaining sum is for future tuition that you have not yet had?

    You won't have to pay it.

    You may also be eligible for a refund for the tuition you have paid for but will not receive - different universities have different refund policies.
