Withdrawing from a Course

Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate Students 

Even with the best made plans some students will be faced with the difficult decision of possibly leaving their course.

Perhaps you’ve hit a bump in the road or you are having second thoughts about your course of study.

Prior to a Student making a decision to officially withdraw from a programme, it is highly recommended that contact be made with either their Programme Leader, Head of Department and/or the TUS Retention Officer. 

To officially withdraw, the student must complete an official TUS student withdrawal form, a hard copy can be obtained from the Admissions Office. The completed form, signed withdrawal form, together with their Student ID Card to the Admissions Office as soon as possible. 

Please click here to download the Withdrawal form.

The withdrawal date applied to the Student Record System will be the date on which the form is received in the Admissions Office

If a student officially withdraws from a programme before specific dates a refund of some fees may be possible. Please see following examples: 

If a student officially withdraws from the college before 31 October, they will be refunded all contribution/tuition fees paid for that academic year. 

If a student officially withdraws from the college between 1 November and 31 January, they will be charged 50% contribution and 50% tuition.  They will be refunded any amount that they have paid that exceeds the 50%. 

If a student withdraws after the 31 January, they are not entitled to a refund and are liable for the full fees for that academic year. Contact

NB: Please note that Materials / Health & Safety fees paid for certain courses are non-refundable. 

Students who do not formally withdraw or defer, will continue to be enrolled on their course and where applicable, the Institute will claim their full tuition fee for that year. 

If a Student who withdraws, has outstanding fees on their account, this will affect their enrolment should they return to the Institute at a later stage.
