If you are an international student then changing course / University may have significant visa implications. You must contact International Student Support team at AskBU for further advice about your situation.
It is also important that before you make this decision you talk to your Programme Leader or Programme Administrator; they will be able to advise you on the implications of withdrawing from your studies. Students who are withdrawing may be entitled to a refund of fees in accordance with the Fees Policy.
If you’re temporarily withdrawing from University, also known as suspending, this might affect your immigration status and the University will have to report any change of circumstances regarding visas.
