6.16 Withdrawal


Students may be required to leave the University if they are no longer able to meet progression or award requirements. Students who do not submit or attend any assessments for a whole semester or academic year will be asked by the relevant examination committee to confirm their continued engagement with their course. If confirmation is not received by the deadline stated in the examination committee communication, the University will conclude that the student no longer wishes to continue with their studies. In this situation, they will therefore be unable to meet progression requirements, and they will be withdrawn from their programme.

Research Students who fail to make satisfactory progress, or to complete registration and transfer as required, will be withdrawn from their programme of study.

Temporary Withdrawal

A student wishing to withdraw temporarily must have a written agreement to do so for a specific period of time and may also have to satisfy pre-agreed conditions before re-enrolling. Any student who withdraws without the appropriate permissions, or fails to re-enrol following the expiration of the specific period of time, may be considered to have permanently withdrawn.

Permanent Withdrawal

A student who withdraws from their course permanently may be liable for ongoing tuition fees if they fail to notify the University in a timely manner.

Research students who fail to maintain enrolment and registration requirements, and do not respond to communications from their supervisors and the University for a period of one year, will be withdrawn from their programme of study.
