  1. Hello, While I was at university, we were all given iPads on loan in our last year and I made the mistake of leaving mine in a classroom one day. I informed the university as soon as I realised and was pretty much told by at the time not to worry as they could likely locate it. Of course, it never turned up, or at least was not logged on their system to have done, and they started emailing me after my graduation (June 2016) asking me to return or pay for it. I informed them I didn’t have it to return and could not afford to pay them the sum of £500 for it. I ignored thei
  2. Hi I dropped out of Uni after 3 weeks after realising the course was not for me back in September 2017. Just before Christmas I periodically started to receive letters from the Uni (Located in Scotland) requesting payment of £1100. Since my departure from Uni I have had no income whatsoever. Despite doing my best to find employment I have had no luck .My wife works and I'm very conscious not to be a financial burden to her. I don't smoke or drink and I limit myself to one meal a day. She is very supportive of me in my search for work, and I don't wish to give the i
  3. In October 2016 I took out a loan online from the sister company of the O University (OU), OUSBA for close to 7.5K (for 2 modules). The repayments were 500 a month. After a few months my circumstances changed and I was unable to make those repayments. I arranged with OUSBA to pay a token payment of 60 a month until my circumstances changed. My circumstances became increasingly worse. I had and still have a lot of trouble with the OU - namely they refused to grade my end of year work because it was submitted a couple of days past the deadline. However, this was due to ma
  4. Hi, I wonder if any one can give me any advice! I was enrolled into university September 2015 and was at university for around a week before I was involved in a serious car accident. The accident resulted in me having to withdraw from the course. The university provided absolutely no support to help me stay on the course as I was so reluctant to leave. I was told I had to pay £195 to them for 'Tuition fees' even though the first week I was there I didn't learn a thing! I've been paying £10 a month to STA International to clear this debt and have been for the last 6 m
  5. Hi, I dropped out of university, due to illness, and the uni agreed that if I did not return I would be charged pro-rata and thus wouldnt have to pay any more cash as I had paid up to my date of withdrawal from the course. The Uni also agreed if I wanted to return to Uni this year to re-sit the course as I had mitigating circumstances, that I could also be allowed on the condition that I paid the outstanding uni fees to top up what I had already paid for the full year's fees. I am contemplating whether to go back next year, to sit the full year again for £1400 (Total price for c
  6. Hello, I am new and need advice. I studied at Uni and thought I had paid all my fees in advance (mature student). On xmas eve I received a letter from STA saying I owed £700+. I did not reply as I wanted to speak to my uni when they reopened after xmas on 4th Jan this year. Uni had never contacted me in anyway to chase any outstanding date and this was a bolf out of the blue. I have read online that its best to ignore them, but I have received three letters now and the odd phone call and becoming worried. I left uni and suffer a mental illness, that means I tend to worry and st
  7. Hello Hope someone can please give me some advice on my situation. As a mature student I enrolled on an online degree course. At the time of enrollment when I asked about hours of commitment I was advised verbally that 15 hours per week was enough commitment to follow through with the degree course. Eager to start I enrolled and had 14 days from the date of the course date to change my mind. After a while it became clear to me and other students, that the hours we had been advised at the date of enrolment, did not coincide with the course reading lists and activities, as the hou
  8. Hi guys had an interesting day yesterday, Got a letter from 1st Crudit, stating I owe a sum from 03/07, they stated if you pay 10% we will pay 90% a new one on me! I was in a class giving a lesson regarding debts, and how to deal with them. I used the details of the letter on the big electronic blackboard, pers removed. I broke all the rules and actually called them, went through the security then put the phone on loud speaker, explained to the guys on the other end that the call was being used as a training aid for the class I was running. They actually agreed to a
  9. Hi all Looking for some advice, it would be much appreciated! about 3 years ago I was studying at university. Part of my course involved a field trip to the USA. I cannot remember but I believe the cost of this was around £400 ..... unfortunately after this field trip my uni career didn't work out and I had to leave. This left me in severe financial straits and I eventually had a DRO issued for me - however I stupidly forgot to include this uni invoice on it after having no contact with the uni or anyone else regarding this ma
  10. Hi all, first post here so sorry if it's in the wrong place. I have been receiving phone calls and letters from a company called STA international claiming I owe £780 from a University Accommodation debt. According to the University it is because even though I moved out, I was still liable for the charges. I left university late 2008 and don't feel that this debt is mine. I stupidly made one payment to shut them up earlier this year (guessing it means I can't wait for it to become SB) What do I do? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
