Interrupting or withdrawing from your studies

Students take time out from their studies for a wide range of reasons - to take up an internship or placement, travel, have children or if they are facing personal challenges making it hard to study. You might also be considering withdrawing from UCL. Whatever your situation, we are here to support you in making the right decision for you.
