Interruption of study information and guidelines.

Interruption of study 'stops the clock' when a student is unable to continue with their studies due to illness or absence. It is important to note that students who fail to submit a thesis on time, and who have not been granted an interruption or extension, may be deemed to have withdrawn and will have their registration recorded as lapsed.

Interruption to Study Form

To be able to complete the AIS approval process in time to make any required stipend payment amendments, students should be submitting AIS requests to the IGS at least 6 weeks before the start date of the intended absence. 

Before applying

Before applying , it is important to check whether there are any implications of interrupting your studies.

Applying for an interruption of studies

Requests for interruptions should occur only once a discussion between the student and the principal or lead supervisor has taken place and an interruption of studies is deemed appropriate.
