Course Withdrawal

Students who need to interrupt their studies for more than two standard semesters may make special application for permission to withdraw from the course and to re-apply for admission at a later date. If re-admitted, such students would retain credit for the work already completed if re-admitted within three years.

Students wishing to pursue this option should make written application to this effect and discuss the matter with the Academic Support Office in the first instance.

Enrolled students who wish to discontinue their studies should contact the Academic Support Office in the first instance and will be required to submit an Application for Discontinuation of studies.

Applications for withdrawal/discontinuation from candidature or from a subject(s) should be made well in advance of the commencement of the relevant semester of study. For applications received:

  • By the census date for the relevant semester, no academic penalty will apply with subject(s) deleted from the academic record.
  • After the census date for the relevant semester, subject(s) will appear on the academic record with a WD result (Late withdrawal).
  • After the first piece of assessment for the subject is available or due, subject(s) will appear on the academic record with an N (Fail) result.
