Consumer Rights for UCSD Students

Your Student Rights in Consumer Law (January and September 2019 enrolment)

The College is now required under Consumer Market Authority Legislation (CMA) to ensure that the information we provide to you is accurate, easily accessible and covers what is necessary for you to make informed choice.

Our commitment to you

  • Through the Programme Fact Sheets we will endeavour to provide information about programmes of study, their structure, and tuition fees and additional course costs before you make your application.
  • We will provide clear details and rationale for any increase in tuition fees up-front.
  • As the relationship between you and the College is a contractual one, we will make the terms of that contract easily accessible and available before you take up our offer.
