Leaving University

If you are considering leaving University then it is important that you seek out guidance/advice. It may be that the course is not for you and you are unclear with regards as to what to do. There may be other factors such as personal circumstance or finance. Some students consider taking time out to think about what they want to do with their lives and type of career. You can use us up to six months after you have left to help with your career plan.

Whether you are changing course or leaving the University it is important that you keep your personal tutor (or course officer) informed with regards your plans.
