Here is a summary of what will happen if you transfer, suspend or withdraw from your studies.
For further information and support please book an appointment to see a Student Money Advisor.
Transferring to a new course within the University of South Wales
If you are transferring to a course within the university then you will need to notify your relevant student funding body to change your course details and any other details that have changed such as course duration.
Suspending your studies for medical reasons
If you are unable to continue the course in an academic year due to medical reasons then we advise contacting your student funding body and informing them of this. A student who suspends on the grounds of medical reasons can usually claim back the year of funding to ensure they have enough financial support to complete their degree. Your student funding body will need to see medical evidence from your doctor and a letter from the University to confirm your suspension of studies.
Suspending/Deferring your studies for a year
If you are looking to take a year out then you will need to speak to your relevant student funding body regarding the terms and conditions of your funding for the next academic year.
Withdrawing from a course at the University of South Wales
Once you withdraw from your course the University will contact your student funding body and confirm you are no longer in attendance. This will mean that they will stop your next student finance instalment. If you leave half way through a term you will be contacted regarding an overpayment as you received finances when you were not studying.
