Students who are required to undertake reassessments must pay the appropriate fee. The fee to register for a re-assessment is £40 per module (up to a maximum of £120) payable in advance.

Reassessment fees should be paid in full before undertaking reassessment. Students will not be prevented from undertaking reassessment if the fee is not paid in advance but they may be invoiced for the amount afterwards in line with QMU's Student Debt Recovery Procedure. Students facing financial hardship should discuss their situation with the Student Funding Adviser.

Students who are undertaking assessments as a first diet due to extenuating circumstances are not liable to pay the reassessment fee.
