If you need to take a suspension of study from your programme, you need to discuss this with your programme leader.

While you are on a suspension of studies, you are not permitted to submit assessments (including resits) and will be unable to access GCU Learn. 

We report suspensions of study to funding bodies, but you should still notify them as soon as possible to avoid any funding implications.  If you are funded by SAAS you can contact them directly.  For students receiving funding from Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales or Student Finance NI, you can email us and we will notify them of the change. 

If you are an overseas student considering a suspension of studies, you should speak to the VISA team for guidance and advice before requesting.  A suspension of studies will have serious implications to your immigration status, so this needs to be discussed fully before you make your decision to submit your request.
