Withdrawal from PGR

Sometimes a PGR student decides to withdraw from studies before completion, this page provides a summary of the withdrawal process.

Any PGR student who approaches the IGS to notify their intention to withdraw from their programme will be encouraged to discuss this further with their supervisor(s) before taking an formal action. 

There can be times when the student would rather not discuss a proposed withdrawal with their supervisor; in these circumstances students should be encouraged to make an appointment with the School's Personal Tutor for Research Students or the Deputy Director of IGS.

Things to note

  • When the student EUCLID record has been updated, the student will no longer be a student at the University. 
  • Withdrawing students must return any office and/or desk keys to the Graduate School Office (INF 3.42) immediately and return any and all equipment belonging to the School.
  • The withdrawal information will be downloaded to the School database highlighting any outstanding office, key, desk and other equipment issues.
  • Departing students should be aware that the University will pursue any unpaid debts, even after the agreed withdrawal date.
