Taking a break from study: If you need to take a break from your studies, you will need to speak with one of our Money & Guidance Advisors first. There are a lot of implications to taking time out, such as when you will return, whether your assessments are affected, when you will be expected to complete your award, and your fees or student loan. They will ensure you have all the information you need when making this decision, and will be a contact for you when you return.
Some courses have strict guidelines on when you can break from study and the amount of time you can take; a Money & Guidance Advisor will be able to go any such regulations with you.
There is also a maximum length of time you can take to complete your award, which a Money & Guidance Advisor can help you understand. This information is in the University’s regulations.
Withdrawing: If you cannot complete your intended award, or want to transfer to another university, you will need to speak with one of our Money & Guidance Advisors first. They will be able to talk you through this process and make sure you have all the information you need relating to your tuition fees and student loan, or any other concerns you may have.
