If you are considering withdrawing from the University or interrupting your studies for any reason, please consult your programme leader or the School PGR Coordinator for research degree students and seek advice if you are experiencing difficulties. Just talking to someone may be enough to put you back on track. Students choose to interrupt study or withdraw for a variety of reasons and we may be able to help.
If you decide that you don’t want to continue with your studies in this academic year, it is important that you correctly withdraw or interrupt study as there are academic and financial implications that you need to consider. For international students there will also be implications with regard to your visa.
You must complete the withdrawal or interrupt study form (download in Word or PDF format - see below), and post or take the form in person to your Faculty Office. Please note, if you wish to email this form we'll only accept it if sent from your University of Plymouth student email account as proof of signature. Do not, under any circumstances withdraw or interrupt study without completing this form. For research degree students, please follow the appropriate process via GradBook or contact the Doctoral College directly.
