    University fees 2005 17th May 18 at 6:12 PM
    I left college in 2005 started at university in September 2005 paying the 3000 tuition fees but in the December I dropped out, unhappy with my course, and reapplied for September 2006. When I returned to university September 2006 I paid the new 9000 tuition fees. Recently I found out because I was in the 2005 cohort I shouldn't have paid that so technically I am owed 6000. Obviously it was a long time ago so probably nothing I can do but thought I might check!

    Did you pay upfront or as part of a student loan package?

    You can ask, but the debt will likely be statute barred by now.

    Don't you mean 1,000 and 3,000? 3k fees came in in September 2006. If you started a new course from then you would be subject to the new arrangements (including the 25 year loan write off that came in in 2006).

    Maybe the OP means that's what they paid for the whole course? Assuming 3 year course.
