Guidance on how to apply for re-admission to a previous research programme at Ulster
If your registration lapsed, or you withdrew from your studies, you may apply to be re-admitted to complete your programme. To do this, you must apply for re-admission in writing (an email is acceptable), your application should be sent to the Doctoral College (firstname.lastname@example.org) and must include:
- Your name, date of birth, year of withdrawal and previous supervisory team details
- Details of the situation which led to your withdrawal, including medical evidence where appropriate. Should the reasons for withdrawal be medical you should also provide a doctor’s certificate indicating your fitness to return to your studies.
- A detailed report on the progress of the thesis to date (minimum 1000 words), including an estimated timeline for completion
Re-admission can take two forms, either short-term re-admission to allow submission (less than 1 year) or re-admission onto the regular programme (up to 3 or 6 years depending on mode of study)
Short-term re-admission comes with a fee of £1,580 and longer-term admission incurs normal yearly fees.
