Leave of Absence
During your studies you may face challenges that you need time away from academic study to deal with. This is known as taking a Leave of Absence (LOA). It “freezes” your period of registration without academic or financial penalty.
If you think that taking a LOA might be a good thing to do, talk to your academic department. Please look at our information online as well as there are many issues to consider: funding, how you can use your period of absence to prepare yourself for your return to studying, when to return etc.
