We understand that things can change along the way so if you're making changes in your life or to your programme, we have processes in place to help you keep us updated.
If you're changing your name, a module, your programme of study, your study period, are leaving the university early or want to extend your visa, we have the information to help you.
Change of name or address
Please let the University know immediately about any changes to your name, address or emergency contact details so our records are up to date.
Change of module
Once you have started your studies, you may decide you wish to change one or more of the modules you've registered for and there is a process to do this.
Transfer to a new programme
Sometimes students decide they would like to change the programme of study they are registered for - this might be possible but there is a process that should be followed.
Extending your study period
Your programme of study will have a maximum time limit and if you wish to extend this you will need to speak to your parent school.
Leaving the university
It may be necessary to leave the University, either temporarily or permanently, before completing your studies. This page explains the regulations and implications of this process.
Changes in circumstances
The funding you get now and in future, can be affected by a change in your circumstances, for example if you're repeating a year, suspending or withdrawing, coming back to university or transferring.
Extending your visa in the UK
If you currently have a Tier 4 student visa and need more time in the UK as a student, you may be able to make an immigration application in the UK.
Leaving your research due to a change in circumstances
If your circumstances change and you need to leave the University or you are judged too ill to continue, there are processes in place to deal with these situations.
Applying for your visa outside the UK
You may need to make your Tier 4 Student visa application in your home country, particularly if you've had a break in your studies or if you have added a year abroad or a year in industry to your programme
