Deregistration Policy

Deregistration is the term given to a break in study either via Leave of Absence or Complete Withdrawal.

Deregistration can only take place via the student portal if you have already registered as a new or returning student.  If you have not registered for the current year and wish to withdraw or take a leave of absence, simply fill in a Withdrawal/Leave of Absence Form in consultation with your Course Director.

If you feel you would like to deregister due to difficulties you are having with your studies or University life in general or if you need to deregister for any other reason you should initially speak to your Course Director.

Student Wellbeing can also provide further advice and support.
