Student Protection Plan and Student Refund and Compensation Policy泭

Every provider of higher education in England is required to have a Student Protection Plan that is approved by the Office for Students (OfS). It sets out what measures we have in place to protect you, as a student at the University College, in the event of a risk arising to the continuation of your studies.泭

The Student Refund and Compensation Policy sets out our arrangements for refunds and compensation for affected students (and applicants) where it is not possible for us to preserve continuation of study, and/or to meet our obligations of provision of education as it was originally intended. This policy relates to our Student Protection Plan and reflects our commitment to the student experience and to supporting our students to achieve their academic outcomes.

Minor amendments were made to the Student Protection Plan in January 2021, to update UKVI terminology, University College Committee titles and modes of study for some University College courses.泭
