Wanting to make changes to your 2017 course of study?
You may need to complete a change of course form.
The last day to delete a full year paper (with a refund of fees) is Friday 24 March.
The last day to withdraw from a first semester paper is 5 May, and 15 September for full year papers.
Note: There is no refund of fees for withdrawn papers, and your liability for any unpaid fees will remain.
Whether you are in your first, second, or third year, the University Course Advice Service is here to help.
They can look at not just your current course of study, but ensure that it is setting you up so you can complete your qualification in a timely manner, and will get you where you want to go.
Course advice is available throughout the year, and at any time during your studies.
See the Course Advice website for more information.
