School Retention Leads

Those students wishing to Withdraw from Study must arrange to meet with their School Retention Lead. Students should take their completed form to their Retention Lead who will check you have considered all the options available to you and can refer to relevant services for further support if appropriate.

If a student decides it is in their best interests to withdraw from their studies the Retention Lead will provide academic advice regarding implications for the student and confirm with the student both the reasons for the withdrawal and ensure the accurate recording of the date of withdrawal.

If a student submits the form electronically, a meeting between the Retention Lead and the student could be held via Skype or telephone.

Students must submit the completed, signed, and stamped “Withdrawal from Study” form to the reception desk within a CAS Hub within three working days of the form being signed and completed by the Retention Lead. Students will be formally notified of confirmation of their Withdrawal from Study within 3 working days of the submission of their form.
