Please note, if you enroll for 2 terms at the discounted rate and then decide you would like to enroll for term 3, the full fee for one term will become payable.

Cancellation Policy


In accordance with our cancellation policy, course fees will only be processed if a student informs UCL SSEES in writing that they wish to withdraw from a Short Course two or more weeks before the start of term.

Any cancellations made less than two weeks before the start of term will NOT receive a refund.

Because of the substantial subsidy offered to UCL students, we are unable to refund any of their course fees unless they have enrolled for a minimum of 3 terms in advance.
