Current Postgraduate Students


Leaving at the end of your studies

To formally leave the department, it is necessary to obtain clearance. You will be able to find a step by step guide on what to do here

Should you require a certificate of the postgraduate courses that you have completed during your time here, you can do this through the appropriate platforms where you completed or booked the courses. If the course was booked through the University Training Booking System, you can find your training history under "Your Bookings". Please check InkPath for courses which were completed through Researcher Development. If you have completed any self-taught courses through Moodle, please contact the Postgraduate Education Team.

Leaving before the end of your studies

Deciding not to complete your postgraduate study is a very serious decision but it does happen in a very few cases and for a diverse range of reasons.  In any case of this type, please talk to your Supervisor, as well as your Academic Mentor, your College Tutor and/or member of the Postgraduate Education Team as soon as you feel like this is something you are considering, in order to help you decide what is the best pathway for you to follow.  We want all of our students to leave the Department with the most appropriate level of recognition for work carried out during the time spent with us and there are several possible options, in the event that completion of your studies is no longer realistic.  However, every case is different and usually complicated so it is difficult for us to present all options for every case here.

Whatever you do, whether ultimately that is to continue and complete your degree or to leave via a different pathway, please decide what to do with our help and support: if you are in this situation, it is likely that it will be a challenging time and we will do our best to help you make the right decisions, backed with guidance on the correct Departmental/University procedures you need to follow in order for everything to run smoothly.
