Student protection plan
In the unlikely event that we need to substantially change or terminate a course, we have the Student Protection Plan in place to protect students who are affected by any proposed changes. This plan has been approved by the Office for Students.
Money laundering, fraud and scams
All students, in particular international students, are targets for criminal gangs who want students to bring illegal money into the UK, legitimise it by laundering it through student bank accounts or they entice students to exchange their own funds for illegal cash. Operating a bank account or dealing with cash in this manner is potentially illegal and there are serious consequences for engaging with this type of criminal activity.
The University no longer accepts cash as a payment method from students as part of our anti-money laundering procedures.
Additionally fraudsters will target students posing as legitimate organisations (such as the Home Office or education agent) and try to trick them into making payments to them before disappearing. The University will never offer discounts on tuition or accommodation fees through third parties.
Students should remain vigilant and question anything that seems unusual. Learn how to spot scams with our advice about scammers – they’re after your money.
