What is Leave of Absence?

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

Leave of absence can be from 1 to 12 months, depending on your circumstances.  Students can apply for Leave of Absence for a number of reasons, including medical, financial, parental leave.

All students who are considering taking a temporary break from their studies should discuss this with their Personal Tutor, Welfare Tutor or Supervisor as soon as possible. All Leave of Absence requests must be authorised.
