Why have I been withdrawn from the University?

There may be a number of reasons why you are required by the University to withdraw from your studies at this point, these may include:

  • You have not passed 45 credits within two semesters of study.
  • You have failed a practice based module more than once or have failed two practice based modules.
  • You have not passed a compulsory module within two attempts.
  • You have exceeded the maximum amount of credits allowed for your stage/ award.
  • You have exceeded the time limit for your stage/ award.

A withdrawal by the exam committee means that you can no longer continue to study on this programme or reapply to restart the same programme at a later date. You may be eligible to apply for a different programme of study at Oxford Brookes, but this will depend on whether the new course has modules in common with the course that you have been exited from. If the modules that you have already failed would also leave you outside of the regulations for the new course, then you will not be permitted to join it.

If you enrolled in the first year of your course from September 2020 onwards, please refer to the University's Regulations for Study.

If you enrolled in the first year of your course prior to September 2020 or entered the second/third year of an undergraduate programme in September 2020, please refer to:

Please follow the guidance in the email you have received from the Exam Committee and contact your Student Support Coordinator or Academic Adviser if you have any further questions.
