Withdrawal, Re-admission or Transfer
If you are considering withdrawing from university, you can discuss the implications of this with an Adviser in Student Based Services. Understanding the financial and academic implications is important to help you to decide what you want to do and when it is best to do it. An adviser can inform you about the situation with your fees, student loan and entitlement to funding for any future course of study.
If you are studying medicine, it is essential you speak with Lancaster Medical School prior to withdrawing. Please email the School Administrator Julie Pearcy for advice and a withdrawal form.
If you decide to withdraw, and are unable to make an appointment with one of the advisers, it is important that you inform the University of your intention. You can do this by completing a withdrawal form in Student Based Services (the form is also available via the link below) or by submitting a withdrawal statement. This will ensure that all relevant departments within the University, and where necessary, your Local Education Authority and the Student Loan Company, are notified of your withdrawal.
If you want to seek re-admission to a new course at Lancaster University to begin in the next academic year you will need the permission of the receiving department. Once you have this you will need to speak to the Student Registry (telephone: 01524 5-92085) so that the re-admission request can be processed. If you wish to finish your current year of study, you will need to successfully complete the year before you can proceed and re-admit onto a different degree scheme. If you have received a Lancaster Funding Award and it is agreed that you can withdraw and re-start or repeat a year of your course and have received an award you will not be able to receive the award again on your return. You are only permitted one award per academic year of study.
Transferring to another institution
If you are interested in transferring your studies to another institution you can contact the institution directly to discuss details such as course content, course requirements, admission requirements (to Part I or to Part II if relevant). If you decide to study at another institution it is advisable to wait until you have your offer in writing before formally withdrawing from Lancaster University (telephone: 01524 5-92085).
