The University lays down formal regulations about withdrawal. The main points are:
- If you are withdrawing from the University please complete a 'Request to Withdraw form', without delay. The form can be obtained by clicking here and logging in to myUniHub. It is essential that you complete the form at the time of your withdrawal.
- It is for you to decide whether it is more helpful for you to withdraw from the University temporarily or permanently, having gained all the advice available to you.
- Your withdrawal will not be completed until you have spoken to a Progression and Support Advisor.
- You will need to discuss your withdrawal with a Progression and Support advisor as there may be other options available to you such as a Temporary Interruption. Also, there will be financial implications to withdrawing and it is important that you fully understand what these are before making the final decision to withdraw.
- It is important that you complete the form at the date you are considering withdrawal, as this will impact on any financial liability that you may incur. It can affect your future entitlement to loans and government contributions towards your fees. Your fee calculation is based on your enrolment period, not your attendance.
- If you choose to Interrupt or withdraw there may be financial implications. We recommend you contact a member of the Student Welfare Advice team or the Finance Team. For more information please look at the Finance page on Leaving or interrupting your studies.
- If you do decide to temporarily withdraw it is important to be aware that your current academic programme cannot be guaranteed to resume following re-admission as if no withdrawal had occurred and that it is your responsibility to make yourself familiar with any changes in assessment policy or practice in the programme of study syllabus that may have taken place during your absence.
- If you take a temporary withdrawal you must make yourself aware of the maximum indicative length of a programme and the limit of time within which deferred assessment or reassessment is available.
