Leave of Absence

Students who need to manage a long-term health, family or personal problem may apply for leave of absence from their studies. The leave of absence is usually for duration of one term, commencing from Term 1 or Term 2.

Refund Policy

If the leave of absence is effected within the first 2 weeks of the term, there will be 100% refund of that term tuition fees paid*. If the leave of absence is effected from week 3 onwards, there will be no refund**.

The effective date for all applications will be based on the application date. Students who are granted Leave of Absence must settle all outstanding fees at Office of Finance before going for their leave.

The above refund policy applies whether you are enrolled in Term 2 or Modified Term 2 or both.

* Students are liable to pay fees upon commencement of an academic school term.

** Students will have to clear any outstanding amounts due.

Note: Students are required to remain contactable while on leave of absence. Students who repeatedly do not respond to the university’s attempts to contact them (e.g. via official email, phone) are liable to have their student registration status terminated. Accordingly, they will be withdrawn from the university.
