Interruptions of Study

Students wishing to take a temporary break from their studies may apply for an Authorised Interruption of Studies. Common reasons for an interruption include health reasons (most commonly mental health), family reasons, internships, employment opportunities and other personal reasons. A maximum of 12 months interruption can be approved at a time and students usually return at the start of the next academic year. A return to studies plan needs to be agreed as part of the interruption.

The University is relatively accommodating to interruption requests however they should be an exceptional course of action for a student. Students should be advised that interrupting studies may have fee implications and to contact The Advice Place for further guidance on this matter.

Students need to complete an interruption request form and provide supporting evidence. The Senior Tutor (and College if required) makes the decision on whether the request is approved or not.

The Student Support Team (SST) and Senior Tutor can assist with interruption requests. The SST will liaise with College as appropriate and process the interruption in EUCLID.
