forthcoming academic session are published on the QMU website well in advance of the start of that academic year. Details of tuition fees and other charges can be found on our website at www.qmu.ac.uk/current- students/current-students-general- information/fees-and-charges and on pages 170-171 in this prospectus. All students who are continuing with their studies should review their fee rates prior to starting their next academic session. No student will be deemed to be fully matriculated until his or her tuition fees have been paid in full, or satisfactory evidence is produced that such fees will be paid by a sponsoring authority. No student will be permitted to attend a graduation ceremony or to proceed to the next year of their course until tuition fees for all preceding years have been paid in full. Failure to settle tuition fees by the due date may lead to a student being excluded from attendance at classes. Ensuring tuition fees are paid is the responsibility of the student and, in the event of a student’s sponsoring authority refusing or failing to make payment in full or in part, the student will be held personally liable for payment. Students will also be liable for any travel and accommodation costs incurred while on placement. Such costs may be paid by a sponsoring authority but should a sponsoring authority refuse or fail to do so, the student will be personally liable for such costs. 6.  For some courses, an additional fee may be payable in respect of registration with a professional body. Additional charges will be made in respect of graduation and, where applicable, reassessment. Full details of registration fees and other charges are set out at www.qmu.ac.uk/current-students/ current-students-general-information/ fees-and-charges/ and students are also personally liable for such fees. 7.  Tuition fees become due on the first day of study and should be paid within 21 days of the due date, or an arrangement made with the Finance Office for payment to be made by instalments. Where a student has opted to pay by instalments, a direct debit mandate must be completed prior to, or at the time of, matriculation. For returning students a new Direct Debit form is required for each year of study. If students experience payment difficulties resulting in tuition fees remaining unpaid for 21 days after falling due, interest on the full amount at 2.5% above the UK clearing bank base rate may be charged. Where payment is being made by instalments, interest will run on an instalment from the due date to the date when the instalment is paid. Where a student encounters difficulty in paying tuition fees, they are required to contact the Credit Controller at the University Finance Office for assistance in drawing up a payment schedule. Any payment schedule drawn up by the Credit Controller must be adhered to by the student until the fees in question are paid in full. Where no payment schedule has been arranged with the Credit Controller and tuition fees remain outstanding 8 weeks after the end of the 21-day period, or where an instalment is over 4 weeks late, a student may be asked to leave the University and the debt shall be transferred to a debt collector. If outstanding fees are then paid prior to the end of the academic year, the University may permit a student to be reinstated. However, where the University agrees to such a reinstatement, a student may be required to repeat parts of any course which have been missed, resulting in additional fees being incurred. Students who leave the University more than 28 days after the start of a programme of study will be liable for the appropriate proportion of the fee, based on semesters attended in whole or in part. 8. The University may withdraw or amend its offer or terminate a student’s registration at the University if it finds that a false or materially misleading statement has been made in, or significant information has been omitted from, a student’s application form. 9. Admission to some degree courses offered by the University, and to some of the professions for which it provides training, may be precluded by certain medical conditions. Students are obliged to include information regarding any medical condition, past or present, which may affect their participation on a course when completing their UCAS or Queen Margaret University application form. If an individual has any doubt as to the effect that a medical or health-related condition may have on their application, they must contact the course Admissions Tutor who will be able to advise accordingly. The University does not warrant or guarantee that a student admitted to a particular course will necessarily be allowed to complete the course if the student subsequently suffers from or contracts any material medical or health condition. All applicants are asked to disclose criminal convictions to help safeguard the welfare of our students. Applicants for certain programmes of study must declare all criminal convictions, and in these cases the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 does not apply. As a condition of entry, candidates for these programmes will be required to provide a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau, Disclosure Scotland or an appropriate equivalent. If an applicant has any doubt as to the effect a criminal conviction may have on his her application, they must contact the course Admissions Tutor who will be able to advise accordingly. 167 10. T  o safeguard the welfare of staff, students, visitors and the general public, the University scrutinises all criminal convictions declared by applicants. Continuing students must declare at the point of matriculation any criminal conviction acquired in the previous 12 months. The existence of a criminal conviction itself does not preclude entry to the University, but admission to, or progression within particular courses, may be precluded by certain types of convictions. Any student who is found to have falsified this self-declaration at the point of application or at matriculation will be subject to disciplinary action. 11. W  hilecourses are designed to prepare students for employment, the University does not warrant or guarantee that students will obtain employment as a res [وX\ٝ[H\][[H\KLH[]\]H\X\\ۜX[]K[^\H^Y\[XX[]KH[^[\Z]YH]܈[H[XYH܈[\H[\YHBY[܈Z\\K]\[ۛX[ۈ]Z\YY\܈ ^\[\[\[\\HHY[\œY\Y\ۘ[[\H܈X]]\YBHYY[HوH[]\]H܈]™[\YY\ˈ[\X[\H[]\]B[HXXH܈[Hً܂[XYH[H\]\܈[XۚX™]H܈[ܛX][ۈۙY܈\YHBY[ Lˈ\ۘ[[ܛX][ۈۈY[[B[[\YXܙ[H]BX[ۈX NNN [[HX\܂Y\][ۈ[Y[H[\[]BX[ۈY[][ۋ\[ܛX][ۈ[H\YHH[]\]H[[]\قH۝X]Y[][HY[ \\وH۝X H[]\]H\˜[\]Z\Y[X\H\Z[[ܛX][ۂۈHY[[][ۈݙ\Y[Y[Y\ˈ[]Z[وH^H[XH[]\]H\\Y[&H[ܛX][ۂ\HݚYY[H]HX[ۂ][Y[X\\YY\\وBX]X[][ۈ\
