Withdrawing from your Course

In accordance with the University’s policy on tuition fees refunds, the amount of any tuition fees refunded is dependent on the date of withdrawal from the course of study. Full details of this policy are available on request.

No refunds can be made before you have:

  • notified, in writing, your academic school of your intended withdrawal
  • the Student Progress Office has been formally notified of your withdrawal by the school
  • your last date of attendance is confirmed

It may also be necessary for you to make a written request for a refund to the Tuition Fees team.

UK and Excepted (EU and other excepted) Undergraduates/PGCE only:

If you decide that you wish to withdraw from your programme of study at Newcastle, the amount of the tuition fees you will be liable to pay will depend on the term in which you withdraw or suspend.

If you withdraw or suspend during term 1 you will be charged 25% of the total academic year’s fee.

If you withdraw or suspend during term 2 you will be charged 50% of the total academic year’s fee.

If you withdraw or suspend during term 3 you will be charged 100% of the total academic year’s fee.

Students with a tuition fee loan

If you have a loan for tuition fees the University will notify the Student Loan Company that your liability for tuition fees has reduced and therefore the amount of your loan will be reduced by the Student Loans Company. No refunds will be made direct to the student if they are in receipt of a tuition fee loan.

International & Postgraduate students only:

If you decide that you wish to withdraw from your programme of study at Newcastle, the amount of the tuition fees you will be liable to pay will depend on the numbers of weeks’ you were registered as a proportion of 30 weeks in the normal undergraduate academic year (41 weeks for postgraduate programmes).
