Withdrawing from study
BY university of reading 25 September 2017
If you are considering permanently withdrawing from your programme, please discuss it with us before you make your final decision.
There might be other more suitable options open to you or support available which may help you remain on your programme. Your personal tutor, senior tutor or Programme Director can discuss these with you. Student Support Co-ordinators or the Admin Deck if you are studying in the Henley Business School can also provide support and assistance as well as giving guidance on the financial implications of withdrawing.
A withdrawal takes effect only when you complete and return the Notice of Intention to withdraw form. Here is an editable version if you prefer to print out and complete a form by hand. Your Student Support Co-ordinator will then write to you and confirm that your withdrawal has been processed.
It is important that you know that you may be charged part of your tuition fee or even the full tuition fee for the year depending on when you withdraw from study. Full details of the 'liability points' and dates can be found here. For full details of the University’s Fee Policy please see here.
International students who require a visa to study in the UK should note that in the event of your withdrawal, the University is required to inform the Home Office UK Visas and Immigration that you are no longer studying and you may be advised to leave the UK.
If you intend to study at another institution you will need to obtain a new Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies and a new Visa for that institution before being allowed to start.
The Immigration Advice Service provides guidance and advice to students here on a Tier 4 visa who are seeking a withdrawal from their studies.
