You may experience a change in personal circumstances which can result in an interruption of study, withdrawal from an academic course, or a change of programme.
It is important to discuss your options before deciding to stop your studies or change course.
Interrupting your studies
Permission to interrupt your studies should come from the appropriate member of staff within your School or Institute.
Withdrawal from Queen Mary is permanent. There are other options which may be more suitable if you are experiencing difficulties, such as an interruption of studies, deadline extensions or a change of programme.
Change your programme
If you would like to change your programme, you must discuss your options with your academic advisor. Permission to change your programme should come from the appropriate member of staff within your School or Institute.
A change of programme may mean converting from a full-time to a part-time course or vice versa. It can also lead to you changing your direction of study, which may result in additional fees and an extended period of study.
