10 1.7 Nursing students repeating modules Students Required to Repeat Modules on Local Education and Training Board (LETB) Contract Funded Health Programmes All Local Education and Training Board (LETB) Contract funded students who are not permitted to progress further on their programme of study (i.e. step-off) and are required to re-enrol to repeat one or more modules will be charged fees for the modules they are repeating. This process will apply to all LETB Contract funded students regardless of when they commenced their studies at the University. Arrangements for the forthcoming academic session are as follows; i. The fee will be set at the standard module price for the academic year (in the fee for a 15 credit undergraduate module (home/eu) will be 480). Thus if a student has one 15-credit module to repeat, the charge will be for one 15-credit module; if two 15 credit modules the charge will be for two modules, and so on. ii. iii. iv. This fee will apply to all students who are required to step off their programme to repeat a module irrespective of the date that they commenced on their programme. The charge will be applied to students who are required to re-enrol for the sole purposes of repeating failed modules. These students will have been advised that they are not permitted to progress on their programme of study and are required to step-off to complete their outstanding studies only. Currently for the majority of cases where the Board of Examiners has agreed that a student may progress to the next academic year with an FREN grade on one or more modules then s/he will be allowed to repeat those modules without an additional charge.

The student will be liable to repay the loan instalments for all three terms. If a student suspends their studies after the first liability date, does not attend in the second term but resumes in the third term then loan payments will be made to the University for the first and third terms. The student will be liable to repay the loan instalments for the first and third terms It will be the student s responsibility to negotiate with Student Finance England concerning any reduction in the number of years for which they will be eligible for support.
