Withdrawing from your studies

If you are thinking of leaving your course albeit for personal or academic reasons, we strongly recommend you discuss this decision with your Campus Advice Zones and your Course Leader before completing the withdrawal form. We may be able to provide you with guidance or support which could help you to continue engaging in your studies.

Before taking the final steps to complete the withdrawal process we would also suggest you contact your Local Education Authority/SLC as well as the University’s Revenue Unit and Student Money Advice Team who can provide you with guidance as to how this decision will affect your current tuition fees, student loans and any scholarships/bursaries or grants you’re in receipt of. If you’re an international student, this will also affect your student visa. Please ensure you obtain correct advice from our Immigration & International Student Advice so that you can make an informed decision. Remember, if you don’t talk to us, we can’t help you!

Before you make any decision, we strongly urge you to take a look at our Withdrawing from study guide

We also recommend you read the University’s Fees and Debt Management Policy 2016-17, which will help you understand what your tuition fee liability is, should you withdraw from your course.

If you have decided to withdraw from your course, please complete the Withdrawal form available from your Advice Zones.

Please note that ceasing to attend classes does not in itself constitute a formal Withdrawal.
