The Faculty recognises that a student may need to take a break from their programme due to ill health, exceptional personal circumstances, financial reasons or in cases where the student intends to transfer their programme. This is known as a 'suspension' and will mean stopping your studies for the remainder of the academic year.
You may apply to suspend your studies until the first day of the Summer Term, please click here for the University's term dates. Any request to suspend after this point must be made on the grounds of health or other compelling reasons and appropriate supporting documentation must be submitted.
All suspension requests must be completed before the May/June Assessment Period. Again, please click here for the University's term dates.
Please see the steps to follow below if you are considering suspending your studies.
