Study Breaks

Study Break/Suspension of Study


In certain circumstances, you can request a study break/suspension of study from your course. This is normally on the basis of:

  • Long-term illness;
  • Personal circumstances resulting in a temporary inability to continue on the course.


There are some things you cannot do during periods of suspension of study. Such as you will not be engaging with the programme, i.e. will not receive academic support or undertake assessments and will not have access to any University facilities, e.g. Library Services, IT Department, etc.


Please also be aware that you cannot suspend your studies in order to complete any dissertations or any other outstanding assessments.
