Leave of Absence

A leave of absence is a period of time during which you are away from the University, and your studies are on hold. In order to take leave of absence you must apply to the Registry Officer, however, approval is not guaranteed. Any modules taken in the semester in which you are granted leave of absence are removed from your record. Periods while you are on leave of absence are not counted when applying regulations regarding semesters of study.

To return to your studies from a leave of absence you must complete the University’s re-engagement process.

You can read the University’s policy on leave of absence here. Also check out the University page on changes to your degree.
