I’m an international student on a Tier 4 visa. I started to study a MSc in Psychology at UEL this January. English is not my native language an because I got a good result in my IELTS I thought I was capable of studying a Masters in London. But reality hit me hard when I arrived, I don’t understand everything the professors speak, I don’t write properly in English (academic writing) I spend triple of the time trying to read and understand a book, lecture, activities. So I fear I will fail.. I would like to know what happens if I fail a module, with my tier 4 visa.. I would also like to know if the university will return some of the money, I paid all the masters.. If I withdraw now what happens? Thank you

Hi, I’d love to help but I have no experience in relation to your predicament. I’ve only studied at an undergraduate level but if you have a personal tutor I’d recommend speaking to them. If you don’t have a personal tutor I’d recommend going to student support services who can advise you on a course of action. They’ll provide everything from counselling to financial advice. If you talk to your faculty office they will tell you if you have a personal tutor.
If you fail a module I know at Undergraduate level you resit it in summer as a second attempt but it’s capped at the PASS level. If you file a PEC ‘ personal extenuating circumstances’ form you can resist it again but it won’t be capped and will count as a first attempt. I believe if you are struggling to understand English it’s a viable circumstance for a PEC. 😊 But yes you MUST speak to someone.
Hope this helps!
