We want our students to experience the highest quality teaching and learning while at Edge Hill University. However, sometimes students may face personal or programme-related difficulties that affect their ability to continue with their programme.
If you are struggling or considering leaving university, please refer to our Thinking of leaving webpage.
If you withdraw your tuition fee liability will be calculated in accordance with the University’s Tuition Fee Regulations. You will not be eligible for any maintenance support, bursary and/or scholarship payments from the date you last engaged with your academic studies.
Where applicable, the University will advise funding providers of your withdrawal.
If you are funded by Student Finance your entitlement to student funding (loans, grants, disabled student allowance etc.) ceases from your last date of engagement. Student Finance will re-calculate your funding entitlement for your period of registration and will contact you in writing about any overpayment. If there has been a delay reporting your withdrawal to the University and there is an overpayment of your maintenance loan, as you received payment you weren’t entitled to, you will be expected to repay this. Should you take up later study any remaining balance will be deducted from your maintenance loan award.
The Fees and Bursaries Team and Money Advice Team are on hand to answer any of your money or funding related questions.Fees and Bursaries Money Advice
Where a student interrupts, repeats, or transfers their course, or decides to withdraw from the University, and stops engaging before their scheduled learning ends (see term dates) their last date of engagement will be required.
It is the basis upon how the University works out a student’s liability for tuition fees and any bursaries the student maybe in receipt of, for example the DfE Teacher Training bursary or the NHS Learning Support Fund. Student Finance will also calculate how much maintenance loan the student is entitled to, based on the last date of engagement provided by the University. This means that if your last date of engagement is halfway through a term, Student Finance will have overpaid you 50% of your maintenance instalment for that term.
The last date of engagement is defined as the date that the University can confirm the student last engaged with their academic studies. This includes classroom based study, submission of coursework, meeting or communicating with tutors.Find out more about last day of engagement
