Detail

Intercalation 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 Intercalation Policy sets out the process for a student to follow to apply for a period of intercalation, and the terms and conditions that will apply to the period of time our and subsequent return to study.

Surprising Terms

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 intercalation accepted by the University will normally be in relation to matters of a serious personal, medical or financial kind.
