What happens to my tuition fees if I interrupt or withdraw from my programme?

Reassessments in 2019/0 - Home/EU and International undergraduate students

If you are unable to progress into the next year of study after the 2018/9 academic session, and have been granted further attempts at re-assessment, then you will have to repeat the year in 2019/0.

You can either be 'in college' or 'out of college' to resubmit failed or deferred assessment in 2019/0. Your mode of attendance will be 'out of college' as a default.

Out of College

This means you will not be in attendance for any lectures or tutorials, and you will not have access to laboratories or specialist facilities, although you will still have access to libraries and to KEATS to revise for your exams.

  • There is no fee to resit ALL your modules out of college
  • You will not be eligible for funding by Student Finance England
  • Tier 4 visa students will not be sponsored for this period and will have to return home.

In College

This means you will be attending lectures and tutorials. You will be charged tuition on a pro rata basis based on the number of credits (see the fee examples below for details). The fee is calculated per credit.

This will be an invoice sent during semester 1 (as with full tuition fees)

  • You need to resit a minimum of 15 credits in order to be eligible for funding by the Student Loans Company. Please contact the KCL Student Funding Office for more information on this.
  • Tier 4 visa students must resit a minimum of 15 credits per semester in order to continue being sponsored by the College while resitting.
  • Please contact your department to clarify which modules you need to resit and whether you are able to resit them in college. You must contact them by 1st October 2019.
  • Once your department confirms with Registry Services which modules you are resitting in college, you will be sent an email inviting you to re-enrol for the academic year. You will also be registered for the modules again on KEATS.
  • We will confirm the fee liability once your request has been approved.
    Please note that the pro rata fees for all reassessment will be based on the 2019/0 tuition fee structure.
  • Calculation: programme fee ÷ total number of credits for the year of the programme x number of credits being resat
