Help and guidance available to students on taught programmes of study who are thinking of withdrawing or interrupting from study.

Information on interruption of studies and withdrawal for postgraduate research students can be found on pages 68 and 71 of the Postgraduate Research Student's & Supervisor's Handbook.

Withdrawal from studies is when you have decided to discontinue your studies at the University of Greenwich and are sure that you cannot or have no intention of returning to continue your studies in the future with the University of Greenwich or any of its partners.

Interruption of studies means that you are either considering or intending to interrupt or suspend study for a specific period of time, but that you intend to resume studies with the university at a future date which has been agreed by the University.

Students considering withdrawing or interrupting should read the information on these pages to gain a full understanding of the process, the implications of withdrawal or interruption, and also for sources of advice and support should you wish to discuss your options with an adviser.

Should you decide to interrupt or withdraw you will need to complete the interruption and withdrawal process which is designed to ensure that you are properly supported in your decision. Students withdraw from the university or interrupt their studies for many reasons. Some students are unaware at the point they leave that there is a lot of help and support available from the university which may have enabled them to stay. Please take a moment and read through the support available below before you commit to withdrawing or interrupting, or call in to your local Student Centre for advice.
