Manchester Metropolitan University

Your offer and the small print

We hope that you will want to take up your offer of a place at the Manchester Metropolitan University. There’s some important information that we’d like you to carefully read before you accept your offer.

1.
Check your Key Course Information

Our printed prospectus is intended to provide an overview of our programmes of study and the University. It is developed well in advance of the start of the academic year and therefore the information within the printed prospectus reflects the courses as they are at that time. The online prospectus provides key up to date material information about our courses to help you make an informed decision about which programme to apply for. Please check the information on the course before accepting your offer of a place.

2.
Your contract with the Manchester Metropolitan University

By accepting our offer you will be entering into a legally binding contract with the University on the basis of the 'Terms and Conditions Applicable to the Provision of the  University's  Educational Services' and terms of enrolment.  Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before you accept your offer.  Your studies and time at the University will also be governed by a framework of regulations and policies, which are set out within the University’s guide on Policies, Regulations and Procedures for Students as applicable to your year of study. The current version can be located here and the version relevant to the 2016 academic year of entry will be updated shortly. The policies and procedures are very relevant to your studies so please familiarise yourself with them so you know what to expect.

Your Right to Cancel

* Important notice: where you have applied via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service, although we provide you with the statutory right to cancel, this does not mean that we will necessarily be able to amend your status with UCAS should you decide to cancel.

You have a statutory right to cancel your contract with us within 14 days without giving any reason.  The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day of the conclusion of your student contract. This will be 14 days from the day you accept the offer of a place at the University. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform the University at The Manchester Metropolitan University, Recruitment and Admissions, Business School/Student Hub, All Saints Campus, M15 6BH or email admissions@mmu.ac.uk of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or e-mail). You may use the Model Cancellation Form, but it is not obligatory. The University will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail), without delay. To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

If you cancel your contract, we will normally reimburse to you all payments received from you.  We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and no later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel your contract provided we have all relevant information.  We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless restricted by law or unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any additional fees as a result of the reimbursement.

By accepting our offer, you will also be providing us with express consent, if relevant, to start delivering your course within your legal cancellation period. If you start your programme during the cancellation period, the University may charge you a reasonable sum for the programme provided.

As well as the statutory right to cancel, we provide you with a right to withdraw from your course within 14 days after you enrol with us, however, depending on when you withdraw, you may be liable for your fees (or a proportion of them). Please see the Terms and Conditions for further information.
