Relevant Policies

Note: Stratford-upon-Avon College merged with Solihull College and University Centre in February 2018.

Our policies are reviewed on a regular basis. Any alterations will usually take effect at the beginning of the new academic year. Changes that have been agreed for the start of the next academic year will be published on the website. Any amendments which may be agreed before the start of the new academic year will also be published.

Cancellation Rights

You will have 14 days from the date we receive your acceptance to cancel your place. If you cancel within the 14 day cancellation period the College will usually refund you any deposit, administration or any other fees you may have paid. However, if you decide to cancel your place once you have started your course, some charge may be applied.

You can cancel your acceptance by informing the College’s Admissions Office by email at headmissions@solihull.ac.uk or by writing to the Admissions Office, Solihull College & University Centre, Blossomfield Road, Solihull, West Midlands B91 1SB using the Cancellation Form below.

What You Can Do If Things Go Wrong

Stratford-upon-Avon College is dedicated to providing student satisfaction. However we also understand that sometimes things don’t go to plan. If an issue cannot be resolved, students are able to raise any concerns they have both academic and non-academic. The Code of Practice on Student Concerns and Complaints is the procedure to deal with complaints, in a fair, consistent and acceptable time frame. If dissatisfied with the outcome, students can get in contact with The Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA), an independent body which reviews complaints from students. The Code of Practice on Admissions is a procedure for reviewing the decisions made during the application and admissions process. See full policies above.

Printing Costs

You will be able to print using your student ID card.

You will receive £1 credit when you enrol (this is credited the first time you present your card at a Multi-Functional Device (MFD)) and thereafter £1 credit per month for the duration of your course.

If you run out of credit, you will be able to purchase additional credit for your card at any time.

The level of printing may vary depending on your course. Where there may be significant costs, this will be identified on the course information page.
