Enrolment policies

Deferral of course

If you have not commenced your award course and wish to defer commencement of the course you must send the Graduate School of Engineering and IT a letter requesting a deferral of offer and nominate a new commencement date.

You will receive an acknowledgment letter from the GSEIT confirming the duration of deferral approved and specifying a date to contact the GSEIT in order to arrange a time to enrol.

Suspension, absence, etc.

Students who have commenced their course and now wish to take a suspension or leave of absence from their course of study must first submit a completed Request to Suspend/Discontinue Candidature form.

In the first instance, you must submit your completed form to the Postgraduate Coursework Director in the School of Information Technologies for assessment. Once assessed the form will be forwarded to the GSEIT for processing.

You will receive an acknowledgement letter thereafter confirming the outcome of your application. It should be noted that in some cases a suspension may not be permissible. If your request is approved, the letter will confirm the duration of suspension approved and will specify the date by which you must notify the GSEIT to re-enrol.

In order to recommence your course, apply to further suspend your course or ultimately discontinue your course after your initial application has been approved, please see the following sections.
