For students not on distance learning programmes, leave from attendance and participation is permitted to undertake study, research or other activities outside their programme of study, that enhance the student’s career or study.
It requires College approval after consideration of an application by the student’s personal tutor, supervisor or programme director.
A “Leave of Absence Request Form” must be completed by your Programme Director. This form can be found here: Leave of Absence Request Form
