Terms start was Sep 30th. Student decided this was not for her and left on 18th Oct - 19 days into term 1. No student finance has been received as yet and Uni is demanding £2000+ in (course) fees for the period.
Surely this is a bit steep?
Anyone successfully challenged a fee demand under similar circumstances?
Course was "sold" to her successfully, but on attendance was quite different to that which was described, hence disillusionment, panic, anxiety ("what have I done?" etc).

Student finance tuition fees are paid in three instalments. I believe it’s 25%, 25%, 50% for undergraduate.

The student in question has stayed as a student past the first instalment date so they are liable to pay it. I don’t think realising uni isn’t meant for you is a good enough extenuating circumstance to get out of paying.

The fact the course wasn’t as it was advertised is a separate issue and if the student wants to take that further, they’ll have to talk to a lawyer.

Hi there,

If you withdraw from your course, the amount you will be charged will be dependent on when you withdrew;

During Term 1 - you will be charged 25% of the fees
During Term 2 - you will be charged 50% of the fees
During Term 3 - you will be charged 100% of the fees


This is charged at your universities discretion.They will advise how much fees are due to be paid and send us a change of circumstances to amend the amount.

Thanks, Amy
