    If you have a sponsor, such as a commercial or charitable organisation who is paying your fees, you will need to provide an official letter of sponsorship from them. This letter should include: the invoice address, name of student, amount of sponsorship and a contact for whom invoice should be sent to. We will then invoice them for the full fee amount giving them 30 days to pay. Please note that if your sponsor fails to pay your fees you will be liable.

    Note:  Parents, family members or friends who may be paying your tuition fees are not classed as sponsors.

  • Tuition and Accommodation Fee Refund Policy

  • If you have made an overpayment, your tuition fees have been reduced due to a late sponsor notification, or you have taken temporary withdrawal or permanently withdrawn from your program, you may request a refund from the University's Student Finance Team (financefees@brookes.ac.uk).
    Where it is established that a refund is payable under this policy, the repayment must be refunded to the original payer using the same method of payment as the original remittance.  This is to ensure compliance with the UK Anti Money Laundering Legislation requirements.

    If you withdraw from your program, or take temporary withdrawal from your program, your tuition fee costs may be adjusted based on your last date of attendance.  See further below.  

    Please note that no application for a refund of fees will be considered unless a withdrawal from studies (temporary or permanent) has been fully approved by the University.  Any overpayment of tuition fees arising from a temporary withdrawal from studies will be automatically carried forward as credit into the next Academic Session. The credit will be used to offset any fee liability upon resumption of studies. Students can however make a formal application for a refund at the point of temporary withdrawal.

    This policy applies to all students except UK / EU undergraduates who have taken a SLC tuition fee loan.  See paragraph 7 for particular provisions for UK / EU undergraduates who have taken an SLC tuition fee loan.
    Where a tuition fee has been paid by a sponsor, any refund due will be paid directly back to that sponsor.
    A refund is payable if you withdraw, or take a temporary withdrawal from the program, before the end of week 4 of a session (either a semester or a term, depending on your study pattern).  In such circumstances, tuition fees for that session and all payments for future sessions will be refunded.

    If an Undergraduate Home or EU student is in receipt of a Tuition Fee Loan from Student Finance England, they will not be entitled to a refund on any overpayment of tuition fees.

    Any overpayment of tuition fees caused by a withdrawal from studies will be repaid by the University to Student Finance England, who will credit the student’s loan account .  The table below outlines the percentage of tuition fee liability for students who withdraw from studies in 2019-20.

     Date of Withdrawal*

    Student Fee Liability 

    % of full year tuition fees

    21 September 2020 - 16 October 2020 0% 
    17 October 2020 - 24 January 2021 25% 
    25 January 2021 - 31 March 2021 50% 
    1 April 2021 onwards  100% 

      * The date of withdrawal is that entered on the student’s account by the University.

    A Postgraduate student in receipt of a Postgraduate Master's Loan from Student Finance England, may apply for a tuition fee refund for any overpayments. This is because the loan is paid directly to the student by Student Finance England.

    Accommodation licence terms and conditions can be found here.  

    • Requesting a refund.  If you have made an overpayment, you may request a refund from the University's Student Finance team (finance-halls@brookes.ac.uk).
    • Refund of Accommodation Fees. You will be due a refund if you have made an over payment or you are no longer liable to complete your contract license agreement.   You will be charged according to the contract dates maintained by the Accommodation Bureau, if this results in an overpayment you will be refunded.
    • Payment of the refund.  Where it is established that a refund is payable under this policy, the repayment must be refunded to the original payer using the same method of payment as the original remittance.  This is to ensure compliance with the UK Anti Money Laundering Legislation requirements.
    The focus of the University will always be on ensuring that students receive the education that they are entitled to expect based on their contract. However, in some circumstances it may be necessary to consider whether compensation, refunds or other forms of non-financial redress are appropriate. Where a student can demonstrate that the University has not met the the standards that are reasonably expected based on their contract, students are able to make a complaint using the University's complaints procedure (Section C2). 

    If, as an outcome of the complaints process, the University agrees that some form of compensation is appropriate, the details of the compensation will be considered using the principles outlined within the UUK  Compensation and refund policies – developing good practice documentation and in line with the relevant consumer protection legislation
