I am in thevery low income group and I paid university deposit for next year postgraduate studies. The university requiered of met o pay a unrefundable deposite of £2000 . I tried tocpntact them by phone or by email why they ask the deposite in such an advancewhile the application for places is still open.but didd notget a reply.. I now find myself in such a difficulty and wouldnot be able to go ahead with my education. I just wonder if there is a legal ground to claim a refund of the deposite I paid.

Hello,

Do you have anything signed with the university?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I simply accepted the offer and paid the deposit. I may have accepted a terms conditions policy, if that counts as signing.
