Academic Records FAQs

 

 

 

 

 

How do I repeat the year or repeat and transfer?

If you are considering a repeat year application, you should first seek advice from either your personal tutor, programme leader or head of department. After discussing your position, you can submit a formal application with the appropriate supporting evidence.  Please contact Academic Records or visit us in the Student Information Centre.

Further information about repeating a year can be found here.

How do I change my course/transfer programmes?

If you want to transfer your programme of study leading to a different award title, you must ensure you meet the entry requirements for the new programme.  You need to obtain approval to transfer from the head of department or programme leader of both programmes.  Generally, course changes can be requested up until the end of the third teaching week of each semester, however they may not always be approved.  If you are considering transferring your course please contact Academic Records or visit us in the Student Information Centre.

Further information regarding Transferring can be found here.

How do I take time out from my studies?

If you experience serious personal, medical or financial issues during your study, you can apply to interrupt your studies.  Interruption applies to exceptional circumstances only. You need approval to interrupt your studies – it is not an automatic right.  If you are considering interrupting your studies please contact Academic Records or visit us in the Student Information Centre.
