Guidance for staff on student administration and support
Cases that the Joint Panel on Remission of Fees has considered include:
The Joint Panel on Remission of Fees does not consider financial hardship cases. Students experiencing financial hardship should apply to the relevant hardship fund committee. Most applications are received from current students through their college. Occasionally cases are received from colleges, departments or other bodies without the involvement of the student, typically where there is a query about the interpretation of fee regulations. Applicants to the University who wish to appeal against their fee status classification may apply direct to the Joint Panel on Remission of Fees. The Panel meets on Wednesday of week 3 of each term. Cases should be sent to the Secretary by Wednesday of week 1 of each term. Urgent cases received between meetings are considered by the Chair but may be held over to the next meeting. Applications on health or disability grounds are considered throughout the year on a rolling basis, and should be submitted to the Secretary as soon as they are ready.
Applications and supporting evidence should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
