on 16 June, the Statute concerning the Michael Daly Memorial
Fund, which was promulgated on 2 June (see `University Agenda'
below). Council has accordingly made the following decree, which

Text of Decree (1)

1 In Ch. IX, Sect. I (Statutes,
1997, p. 621), delete § 71 and renumber existing
§§ 72–80 (pp. 622–6) as §§
71–9.

2 This decree shall be effective from the
date on which the Statute approved by Congregation on 16 June
1998 is approved by Her Majesty in Council.

Decree (2): Appointment of examiners in
the Honour School of Natural Science (Chemistry)

The following decree, made on the recommendation of the Physical
Sciences Board and with the concurrence of the General Board,
increases the number of examiners in Chemistry for the Honour
School of Natural Science from twenty-four to twenty-six to allow
for the appointment in each part of the second public examination
of a chairman of examiners who will not have any marking
obligations.

Text of Decree (2)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1040, l. 20, delete
`Twenty-four' and substitute `Twenty-six'.

section



Decree (3): Procedures in the event of
non-payment of the £1,000 university tuition fee

Explanatory note

Undergraduates admitted to the University with effect from
Michaelmas Term 1998 (subject to very limited
exceptions—primarily `gap-year' students) will be personally
liable to pay a tuition fee of £1,000, although some will be
entitled to a contribution from their LEA (or equivalent body).
Council has noted that in the case of Oxford the expectation is
that nearly two-thirds of `home' undergraduates will be liable to
meet the full costs of their fees, with perhaps one-eighth
entitled to payment in full from public funds. In the light of
the new arrangements, Council has decided that a new procedure
should be introduced in the University's financial decrees to
enable the exclusion from the premises and facilities of the
University of those students who fail to pay their fees when due.
It should be noted that `suspension' in the following decree
relates solely to exclusion from the premises and facilities of
the University and does not involve suspension of membership of
the University. The following decree sets out the new procedure.
Draft legislation containing consequential amendments to the
financial decrees is in preparation.

section


Text of Decree (3)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1099, after l. 18
insert new cl. 14 as follows and renumber existing cl. 14 (l. 19)
as cl. 15:

`14. (a) In the case of home and EU undergraduates the
annual university tuition fee shall be paid on or before the
seventh day of Michaelmas Full Term (or the term in which the
student commences his or her course, as the case may be) unless
the Bursar of the student's college certifies in writing that

(i) the college has approved the student's application to pay
by instalments, the first such instalment having been paid;
and/or

(ii) the student has applied for, and is prima facie eligible
for, a contribution to his or her fee from his or her local
education authority (or equivalent body), and the college is of
the opinion that no contribution will be required from the
student.

(b) In the event that the fee, or the relevant
instalment towards the fee, remains unpaid at the end of October
(or the end of January or April as appropriate where the student
commences his or her course in Hilary Term or Trinity Term) it
shall be the duty of the Bursar of the student's college to
notify the student concerned that, in the event that the fees due
have not been paid in full within one month of the date of such
notification and in any case not later than the end of the Full
Term in question, the student shall be liable for suspension from
access to the premises and facilities of the University
(including the Examination Schools and other places of
examination) from the end of term until such time as outstanding
fees have been paid.

(c) A student who wishes to show cause why he or she
should not be so suspended shall be entitled to apply to a Fees
Panel for readmission in accordance with the procedures set out
below.

(i) The Fees Panel shall comprise the Assessor, a college
bursar (not being the Bursar of the student's college) appointed
by Council, and one other person appointed by Council.

(ii) The student shall make a written submission to the Bursar
of his or her college setting out the reasons why the payment of
his or her fees should be deferred, and the Bursar shall forward
this submission to the panel with an indication whether the
college supports or does not support the application.

(iii) The panel shall be empowered

(1) to confirm that the student will be suspended until such
time as the fees due are paid in full; or

(2) to defer suspension subject to payment according to a
schedule of payments set out by the panel, which may or may not
as the panel shall decide contain additional financial penalties
for deferment of payment; or

(3) to recommend to Council that outstanding fees be
remitted.

Any submission under this clause must be made during the course
of the Full Term in which payment of the fee (or relevant
instalment) is due.

(d) There shall be no appeal against a decision of
the Fees Panel. A student may, however, make a further
application if the Bursar of his or her college supports an
application on the basis that the student's financial
circumstances have changed for reasons beyond his or her
control.'

Decree (4): University composition fee
for the Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Studies

Explanatory note

The Department of Educational Studies has been given funding by
the Teacher Training Agency (TTA) to develop a range of in-
service training courses for teachers, the succesful completion
of which will result in the award of a Postgraduate Diploma in
Educational Studies. Council has agreed that the fee for such
courses should be set at £200 annually (this is a reduction
of the current fee of £375, which is believed to have
deterred potential applicants).

Text of Decree (4)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1100, l. 4, delete
`£375' and substitute `£200'.

Decree (5): Definition of `home'
students for fee purposes

Explanatory note

The amended Education (Fees and Awards) Regulations 1997 set out
new provisions for the definition of persons entitled to be
charged university composition fees at the appropriate `home'
rate. The regulations also included transitional arrangements
covering persons recently arrived from Hong Kong, but this
section was not included in the decree made by Council in Hilary
Term (Decree (2) of 26 March 1998, Gazette, p. 982).
The following decree amends the University's provisions to
include this category of students.

Text of Decree (5)

In Examination Decrees, 1997, p. 1103, as amended by
Decree (2) of 26 March 1998 (Gazette, p. 982), after
l. 24 insert:

`11. In any case where the relevant date is before 1 September
2000 a person who

(a) at the relevant date was settled in the United
Kingdom within the meaning of the Immigration Act 1971,

(b) neither had the right of abode in the United
Kingdom nor was settled therein within the meaning of that Act
at, or at a time before, the beginning of the three-year period
preceding that date and,

(c) at any time during that period was ordinarily
resident in Hong Kong.'

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, to enable investigators to
start projects at the Oxford Centre for Functional
Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB);

---Travel fund, especially for costs of
visits to other laboratories or to training courses to
learn new techniques.

Support is normally restricted to members of the
McDonnell--Pew centre but, in exceptional circumstances,
applications from others will be considered.
