University Of Greenwich Interruption

Withdrawal and interruption of studies

Help and guidance is available to students who are thinking of withdrawing or interrupting from study.

Withdrawal from studies is when you have decided to discontinue your studies at the University of Greenwich and are sure that you cannot or have no intention of returning to continue your studies in the future with the University of Greenwich or any of its partners.

Interruption of studies means that you are either considering or intending to interrupt or suspend study for a specific period of time, but that you intend to resume studies with the university at a future date which has been agreed by the University.

Students considering withdrawing or interrupting should read the information on these pages to gain a full understanding of the process, the implications of withdrawal or interruption, and also for sources of advice and support should you wish to discuss your options with an adviser.

Should you decide to interrupt or withdraw you will need to complete the interruption and withdrawal process which is designed to ensure that you are properly supported in your decision. Students withdraw from the university or interrupt their studies for many reasons. Some students are unaware at the point they leave that there is a lot of help and support available from the university which may have enabled them to stay. Please take a moment and read through the support available below before you commit to withdrawing or interrupting, or call in to your local Student Centre for advice.

Interrupting your studies

Interruption of studies means that you are either considering or intending to interrupt or suspend study for a specific period of time, but that you intend to resume studies with the university at a future date. If you are interrupting your study, you will return to study at a date agreed with your personal tutor.

It is very important that you consider your situation carefully before making a decision to interrupt your studies. You should always speak to your personal tutor to discuss the situation with him/her before making any decision.

When should I return to study?

You would normally be expected to return to your studies at the start of the next academic session. If you require an extension to your period of interruption i.e. for another academic year, you should seek advice from your personal tutor or your School to see if this is going to be permissible,  your student support provider and student finance at the university as this may affect the type of student support that you are eligible for and the rate of tuition fee that you are required to pay.
