Withdrawal of studies
You should check the University's tuition fee policy regarding any liability you may have in respect of your tuition fees following withdrawal. If you require further clarification on your tuition fee liability, please contact email@example.com. If you are sponsored by the Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) or the Student Loans Company then the University is required to inform them of your withdrawal.
If you are funded by one of the research councils, your award will be terminated with effect from the date of your withdrawal. The University is required to inform the research council of your withdrawal.
If you are living in University accommodation then you will need to contact Accomodation to establish if there are any implications of your withdrawal.
If you withdraw from your studies and are not eligible for an award, a transcript will be posted to your home address.
If you gained sufficient credit you may be eligible for an academic award. If this is the case then you will be notified by Student Programmes and invited to a Graduation ceremony. Your transcript will presented to you with your award at your ceremony. Should you not attend the ceremony then your certificate and transcript will be posted to you after the ceremony date.
If you are a professional doctorate student, you may still be eligible for an academic award. For example, if you are a professional doctorate student and have successfully completed the taught element of your programme, you may be eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma.
The University of Stirling is required by Home Office (UK Visas and Immigration) to notify them of those students in receipt of a Tier 4 Visa who withdraw. If you withdraw from your studies you will no longer be sponsored under Tier 4 and the Home Office will expect you to leave the United Kingdom as soon as possible after withdrawing. Please refer to Immigration information for students who withdraw or take leave of absence from for further information.
