Student Protection Plan

This Plan contains:

  • an assessment of the range of risks to the continuation of study for University of Manchester students, how those risks may differ based on the students’ needs, characteristics and circumstances, and the likelihood that those risks will crystallise;
  • a description of the measures that the University has put in place to mitigate those risks that it considers to be reasonably likely to crystallise;
  • information about the policy the University has in place to refund tuition fees and other relevant costs to its students and to provide compensation where necessary in the event that the institution is no longer able to preserve continuation of study;
  • information about how the University will communicate with students about the student protection plan.
