NEW FINE SYSTEM
17 July 2013
- Due to unprecedented demand on our Personal Development Workshops and to ensure effective use of spaces available, we are introducing a fine scheme. All our workshops have significant waiting lists and every time someone does not attend or drops out, it denies a place to another student. We hope the fine scheme will encourage students to think about whether they can really commit themselves to attending a workshop for 2 hours a week for up to 6 weeks.
- When you receive confirmation of a place on the workshop you have applied for, you are informed that if you do not attend or drop out of the workshop without letting us know in advance, you will be liable to pay a fine of £30 to go towards our admin costs and be reinvested in the workshop development.
- This will be applied to your record, much like library fines are, but it will not affect graduation. The fine is non-refundable and will be payable through the UCL Online Payment Service. The debt flag will be removed as soon as the payment has been made.
- Once the fine is paid, you will be able to access our services once again, receive our support and attend more workshops. If the fine remains unpaid, you will not be able to register for and attend another workshop.
