Financial information for students starting in September 2014

Financial information for all new and continuing students. This is for the academic year 2014 - 2015

Registration

Where a trust fund or other sponsoring organisation is paying your fees, you must bring a letter with you to Registration confirming this.

Students are contractually responsible for paying their fees. If a student fails to make proper arrangements to pay their fees they will ultimately be withdrawn from their programme. The Conservatoire takes a serious view of the non-payment of fees and through internal sanctions and external agencies will pursue payment.

If you have concerns over your financial situation, Student Services are available for consultation and we suggest you seek guidance as soon as you think there may be a problem.

Home/EU undergraduate students

If you have applied to Student Finance, you will be sent a Student Finance Breakdown and a Payment Timetable by Student Finance Direct. You should bring both of these to Registration.

If your fees are not paid in full, you must bring all forms you have received relating to your financial arrangement to Registration, together with a payment for the balance due.

If you do not have the forms by Registration, but have made an application, please bring the most recent correspondence with you.

For students who are paying their own fees, a single payment must be made by 1 September 2014 if you are paying in full, alternatively you have the option to pay by three instalments and this must be done online via the following link:

www.trinitylaban.ac.uk/students-staff/online-payments

No instalment plan will be allowed that has not been set up online.

Payments will be taken in three instalments: on setting up the plan, 6 January 2015 and 14 April 2015.

There will not be an option to pay in more than three instalments. In the event of a failed or stopped instalment payment, the availability of payment by this method will cease and all outstanding fees will be due immediately.

If you have any outstanding debt from previous years, you will not be allowed to enrol until these have been paid in full.

All postgraduate and international students

A single fee payment should be made by 1 September 2014. Alternatively, if you wish to pay by three instalments, this must be done online via the following link:

If you have any outstanding debt from previous years, you will not be allowed to enrol until these have been paid in full.

Please note that postgraduate and one year programme fees are subject to an annual increase. 

Tier 4 student visa refusals

Tuition fees are normally fully refundable in case of visa rejection prior to enrolment on a programme. Students must provide evidence of the visa rejection from the UK Border Agency to the Registry Department.

How to pay

Our preferred method of payment is online for both payments in full and by instalments.

Status changes (from full-time to part-time, part-time to full-time and placing your studies into abeyance)

Status changes will need to be completed by the 27 October 2014. It will NOT be possible to change your status after this date unless there are Mitigating Circumstances (see below). The Change of Status form can be found on Moodle, or is available from Registry.

If you decide to change from full-time to part-time you should note that this will take effect from the following term and you will be charged a full-time fee for the first term following enrolment.

Scholarship repayments

If you change status, or withdraw from your programme of study, you will be liable to repay the award on a pro-rata basis. You will be informed of any outstanding fees due by the Finance Department.

Mitigating circumstances

If you feel there is a Mitigating Circumstance (such as illness or unforeseen circumstances) which has affected your studies, you can submit an application to request changing your status later than 27 October 2014. This should be submitted to the Registry Department along with documentary evidence. Requests to change your status past the deadline will be considered on a case-by-case basis by Registry.

Collection of debt from fully enrolled students

GENERAL

In the event of any debt outstanding at the end of a student's course, the student will not be invited to attend the graduation ceremony and will not receive their graduation certificate until all outstanding monies are paid. Full transcripts on headed paper will not be issued.

TUITION AND ACCOMODATION FEE DEBT

A fully enrolled student who has opted to pay by instalments must make all payments by the agreed dates. If a student does not make the second or third payment by the due date, a three week period will follow where access to IT, the Library and practice rooms will be restricted.

The Finance Department will inform the Directors of Music and Dance of those students whose access to facilities is being restricted. If at the end of this three week period no payment has been made, the student will receive a letter from Finance stating that they must attend a meeting with their Faculty Director (or nominated deputy) and a member of Finance and Registry to see if the situation can be resolved. The student will be notified of the time and date of the meeting and attendance will be compulsory.

The student will be responsible for notifying their teacher where the meeting conflicts with a scheduled class.

If the student does not attend the meeting or no satisfactory agreement for payment has been reached, the student may be excluded with immediate effect. If the student fails to meet a deadline in the payment agreement the student may be excluded with immediate effect.

If tuition fees remain outstanding after the end of the academic year, the debt will be actively pursued by the Finance Department Credit Controllers, and the matter will also be passed to a debt collection agency.

RECOVERY OF DEBT FROM EXCLUDED STUDENTS

A student who has been excluded under the terms of these Regulations will be actively pursued by the Finance Department Credit Controllers for the outstanding debt, and the matter will also be passed to a debt collection agency.

Depending on the size of the debt, this may lead to the student having a County Court Judgement entered against them.

I understand that the Assessment Board reserves the right to advise me to withdraw from the programme where my achievement is not satisfactory. In this event, a term's fees in lieu of notice will not be payable.

I agree to pay the fees and any additional charges prescribed for my programme, in accordance with the published payment schedules.

I am aware that should I decide to change status, I am required to do so by 27 October 2015.
