University isn't right for me anymore

Having browsed through all the information on this site and considered all your options, you may decide that leaving the university is the best option for you. There are a number of people you should inform and steps you need to take to ensure that your withdrawal from university goes smoothly and your fees and other finances are calculated correctly:

  • When making such a decision, you should consider the potential financial implications of your decision - the Student Support Services Advisers are on hand to offer advice on the impact that this decision may have on your student loan, bursary or scholarship:
    • If you are being externally funded during your studies, you must remember to notify the relevant funding body as soon as possible that you have decided to withdraw from your studies.
    • If you are self-funding your studies and have already paid your tuition fees in full, then you may be eligible for a proportional refund (full details are available within the University refund policy). Refunds are calculated on the basis of the date that notification of withdrawal is received.
  • If you wish to explore alternative study or career options available to you, then speak to one of our Careers Advisers within the Career Development Centre.
