|Academic Regulations 2019-20
Interruption is defined as an approved period during which a student has permission for their studies to be suspended and the student is not normally required to engage with their programme. The Interruption Policy sets out the process for a student to follow to apply for a period of interruption, and the terms and conditions that will apply to the period of time our and subsequent return to study.
- Under ordinary conditions the University expects that students will complete their programme in a single continuous period. Any interruption will therefore only be granted when it is deemed by the University that there are extraordinary circumstances impacting on a student’s ability to study. Reasons for interruption accepted by the University will normally be in relation to matters of a serious personal, medical or financial kind.
