If you’re unable to make a payment on the agreed date, you should promptly inform the College’s finance team in writing via email, detailing the reasons for the delay and requesting an extension. Failure to do so may result in additional charges, including late payment fees of £50 after 30 days from the original due date, and potential interest. It’s essential to keep communication open to avoid any penalties.

The College reserves the right to make changes to courses, including content, instructors, and schedules, or to cancel them entirely. In such cases, we will make reasonable efforts to inform affected students and provide suitable alternatives. If you have any concerns or questions about changes to your course, please reach out to us via email at info@lcfp.org.uk for assistance.

If you’re inactive for a prolonged period, meaning you’re not engaging in course activities such as logging into the learning portal, attending scheduled classes, or submitting assignments, LCFP will send you reminders to encourage your participation. If you fail to respond to three reminders, you may be withdrawn from the course. It’s essential to stay engaged and communicate with us if you encounter any difficulties during your studies.

If you’re struggling academically, LCFP is here to support you. Upon failing an assignment, you’ll receive detailed feedback to help you improve. However, if you fail the same assignment twice, you’ll receive a formal warning about potential withdrawal from the course. Continued poor academic performance despite the warning may lead to withdrawal. We encourage you to take advantage of our support services and communicate any challenges you face during your studies.

Unfortunately, students who are withdrawn from the course due to inactivity or poor academic performance are not eligible for a refund. It’s important to maintain engagement and academic progress to avoid withdrawal. If you’re withdrawn and wish to re-enroll, you’ll need to meet specific criteria, and there will be a re-enrolment fee of £250.

Plagiarism involves using someone else’s ideas, words, or work without proper acknowledgment. To avoid plagiarism, ensure that you always attribute sources correctly using the Harvard referencing style. This means providing in-text citations for direct quotes or paraphrased ideas and including a reference list at the end of your work. It’s crucial to distinguish between your own thoughts and those of others and to always credit external sources appropriately.

While some level of similarity is expected, especially when using common terminology or quoting from academic sources, excessive similarity may indicate potential plagiarism. Your assignment will be reviewed using text comparison software like Turnitin and Copy Catch, which checks for similarities with internet sources and previous student submissions. If concerns arise, you may receive academic writing support to improve your referencing and citation skills. In more serious cases, you may be referred to the Academic Conduct Officer for further investigation and disciplinary action if necessary.

LCFP provides detailed guidance on referencing and avoiding plagiarism in the LCFP Guide to the Harvard Referencing Style. Additionally, module-specific guidelines and feedback from tutors can help you understand academic conventions and improve your referencing skills. Remember, mastering proper citation and referencing is essential for academic success and integrity, so don’t hesitate to seek support and feedback as you develop your academic writing skills.
