Student Advice Spotlight – Tips From Students Using The Policy:

  • Consider what options are best for you, whether that is a semester or a year out of study. It is your decision and always ensure you speak to Registry about the study options for your course.
  • Is there an online option for your course that you might want to consider in order to offer you more flexibility in the future?
  • Write down any questions about your leave and return to study plans to ask the University Welfare team to help design your plan to suit you.
