Students who pay overseas fees and are applying for a full-time, on-campus course are required to pay a non-refundable deposit of £3500 in order to enrol at Staffordshire University. Applicants who require a Student visa must pay the deposit before the Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (CAS) letter is released.
The deposit is a confirmation that you have made your final decision to study at Staffordshire University and is therefore non-refundable in the majority of cases. A refund can only be issued in a small number of circumstances and will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
A full deposit refund will be considered in the following circumstances:
Please note that formal evidence from an official source will be required before a refund can be approved and processed.
Student visa applicants are strongly advised to refer to the Home Office Guidance to ensure that their visa application is valid at the point of submission.
No refund will be given to students whose visa is refused for the following reasons:
In case of a visa refusal for any of the above reasons, a refund will not be granted and Staffordshire University will retain the full deposit. Any additional tuition fee payments will be refunded in full.
A refund following a visa application could only be considered in the following circumstances:
In these circumstances, an administrative fee of £500 will be retained by the University and all other tuition fee payments will be returned in full.
If you are unable to join us as planned, you can request to defer your place to the following year. A deferral request will be granted on a maximum of two occasions. After this, you will have to re-apply with a new application.
UCAS applicants are only able to defer their place if they meet the conditions of their offer by 31 August.
If you wish to defer your application, we will hold the £3,500 deposit for the following year and refund any additional tuition fees paid. A deferral request can only be granted by the University twice, after that the University will retain the deposit and you will be required to make a fresh application and pay a new deposit of £ 3500.00.
If, after you have been granted a deferral, you decide that you no longer wish to attend Staffordshire University, your deposit is non-refundable unless you are able to demonstrate that you meet one of the refund criteria shown above. If your refund is granted as per the above guidelines, Staffordshire University will retain a £500 administration fee.
If you wish to defer your offer, please contact the International Admissions team at firstname.lastname@example.org
