Terms and conditions

The following documents contain the terms and conditions for students. In registering to become a student of Lancaster University Leipzig, you are accepting these terms and conditions and they will form part of your contract.

Important terms to note:

  • Every student of Lancaster University Leipzig becomes liable for the full sessional tuition fee upon registration.
  • Tuition fees are not normally refunded to or in respect of a student who is excluded during the session.

Student Protection Plan

The University undertakes forward planning and, ordinarily, where a decision is taken to cease providing a course or module, or to withdraw from provision at a particular location, registered students currently on course will be taught to the conclusion of their studies and/or consulted on the change. However, the Office for Students requires the University to publish an approved Student Protection Plan to ‘preserve the continuation and quality of study for all of the provider’s students whenever a risk to the continued study of students crystallises’.  Please refer to Lancaster’s current approved Student Protection Plan.

Students registering at the Lancaster University Leipzig Campus will be subject to the protection of Lancaster University Student Protection Plan with the same protection afforded to students at other overseas campuses.  The Student Protection Plan will be updated to include the Leipzig campus shortly.

Data Processing by Third Parties 

Lancaster University Leipzig uses third-party organisations to provide some of its information system, counselling, support, accommodation and transport services for students. In some cases, this may involve sharing the minimum required personal data with these third parties to enable their provision of service to students.

Full details of the way in which the University uses your data are available in Lancaster University Student Privacy Policy. The Navitas Privacy Policy is also available here.

Other contracts

During 2019, Lancaster University Leipzig’s membership of Studentenwerk Leipzig is expected to be approved. At this point a mandatory fee will become payable by each student. This fee is expected to be €210 per semester in your first year of study. This fee is expected to rise by €10 annually until 2024, however, as this fee is not set by the University, this fee increase or the availability of Studentenwerk may change. We will endeavour to notify you as soon as possible in the event that there is such a change. Lancaster University Leipzig has no control over or responsibility for the levels or types of service provided by Studentenwerk Leipzig. Any such issues arising must be taken up with the service provider directly.

You may choose to enter into other contracts with the University. Examples of such contracts will be added to this document if and when they arise.
