Suspensions and Withdrawals

The purpose of the programme withdrawal process is to record and monitor all programme closures and ensure that once a decision is made to close a programme, students are given every opportunity to finish their studies without compromising the quality of the learning experience and the academic standards of the programme.  A step by step guide to the process and the responsibilities of those involved can be found within the Code of practice for programme suspension and withdrawal.

A summary of key deadlines in relation to the programme life cycle processes, including Marketing and Timetabling deadlines, can be found here.

Below are links to the Programme Suspension and Withdrawal documents to download.  These can also be found as an appendix within the Code of practice for programme suspension and withdrawal:
