These FAQs are here to help you find the information you need, when you need it, but you can always contact AskBU if you’d like to talk to someone in person, by phone or email, or if you have feedback about the FAQs.
If you are thinking about interrupting your course, changing your mode of study, or leaving BU we can provide advice and guidance for you. This can be a difficult decision and it is important you fully understand the impact of your decision and make the right choice for you.
There are a number of different reasons for students to withdraw from university; from academic, emotional or family/relationship issues to financial or medical concerns. Or it could be that university is not for you or that the course is not what you expected. We have a range of support services available and more information can be found on the Looking for support? pages of our website.
Before you do anything else, you need to talk to your Programme Leader or Programme Support Officer; if you are not sure who this is, please contact our AskBU Team who will be happy to advise you.
Please also refer to our Thinking of interrupting your studies or leaving BU? web page which provides a comprehensive guide including a link to the form you will need to complete once you have made your decision.
