What is a Leave of Absence?

During your period of registration, you may experience a range of significant challenges that may compromise your ability to continue to fully engage with your programme of study. In certain situations the most viable course of action may be to take an authorised temporary break from study, known as a Leave of Absence.

Please liaise with your employer and your programme lead before submitting a Leave of Absence (LOA) form.
