Permanent Withdrawal

If you are considering withdrawing from your studies we would like to help you make the right decision for you. Before making a decision we would strongly advise that you speak with your academic department and, if relevant, support services at the University. In addition, there are likely to be practical repercussions on your student funding, the fees you are due to pay the University and your accommodation. It is important you understand these BEFORE you make your decision.

A withdrawal from studies is when you permanently leave your programme of study.  If something is affecting your ability to study and you need to take some time away then you may wish to consider suspending your studies and returning at a later point rather than completely withdrawing.

To permanently withdraw from your studies, you will need to complete and submit the Withdrawal Request Form in full. Please read the guidance in these web pages before you complete the form and email it to us.
