Suspending your studies

Campus based students

If you choose to suspend from your studies you will need to ensure that you have followed the suspension process.

Once your suspension has been agreed by your department and processed on your student record, changes will be made to your tuition fee account.

Your tuition fee liability will be calculated as per the 'withdrawing from your studies' process. If there is an overpayment, this will not be refunded but will be used to offset your tuition fees charged when you return to your studies. If you have fee liability to pay, this should be settled immediately upon your suspension.

Distance learning students

If you are considering suspending your studies, please contact the relevant Distance Learning Team to discuss. You should also read the relevant section of the Student Handbook for your course, which will outline at what point during your studies you are able to request suspension.

Whilst you are in a period of suspense from your studies, any outstanding payments due may be frozen and your payment due dates will be adjusted in line with when you are due to return to your studies.
