Swansea University

1. General Regulations

1.1

The University recognises that candidates may feel compelled for various reasons to interrupt their studies during/over an academic session. In such instances candidates may request a suspension of their studies.  It should be noted that candidates do not have a right to suspend their studies; rather suspensions must be requested and approved by the University.

1.2

Undergraduate candidates are only permitted to request to suspend their studies during their maximum period of candidature.  Requests which fall outside this period should be dealt with through a request for an extension.  Likewise, taught postgraduate students are only permitted to request to be allowed to suspend their studies during the minimum period of candidature. This includes students in Part Two of a Taught Master's degree. Students pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma may only request a suspension of studies during the minimum period of study for the programme.
