Interruption and withdrawal

For some students there may be a point when either personal circumstances are affecting your ability to study and complete course work, or you realise that your course does not feel right for you.

For some students there may be a point when either personal circumstances are affecting your ability to study and complete course work, or you realise that your course does not feel right for you.

The University encourages you to speak to your personal tutor or support staff in your College as soon as possible, to look at options available to you.

You are also strongly encouraged to speak to an Advisor in the Guild Advice Unit, as any break in your studies could have significant implications for your funding and accommodation both now and in the future. Also you need to consider how you may need to support yourself during your time away from studying.

Remember if you are unsure what to do that we are independent from the University and anything you tell us is in complete confidence. If you do decide to interrupt or withdraw from your studies you will need to complete the appropriate form which is available from your College or via SID. This must be signed off by your College to allow you to be release from your course.
