Withdrawing from CILEx courses

If you are thinking of withdrawing from CILEx courses please ensure that you have spoken to us so that you are aware of any fee liability before you leave.

The date you withdraw can have a significant effect on the amount of money you may need to pay for your tuition fees and on the amount of any fee refund you may be eligible for.

If you decide to withdraw, please:

  • contact us
  • complete the withdrawal form we will send you
  • return any library materials, otherwise you will be charged for their cost (please see the refund policy below)
  • provide feedback on your experience at Westminster on the withdrawal form

If you withdraw and later wish to return, you will have to re-apply for admission.
