I am a former Roehampton student and I didn’t complete my programme of study. I would like to return to Roehampton and resume my studies. Is there anything that might prevent me returning?
The following scenarios may prevent former students from resuming their studies:
- If you were ‘programme terminated’. If you were previously programme terminated from a programme at Roehampton then it is highly unlikely you will be able to return and resume your studies in the same programme. However, you may be able to return on another programme of study, or return but commence your studies from the beginning.
- If you were expelled for disciplinary reasons. If your expulsion was time limited, you are permitted to return. If it is permanent, you will not be permitted to return.
- If your period of study at Roehampton was more than five years ago. We will not ordinarily accept credits form more than five years ago. If this is the case for you, you will need to start your studies again from the beginning rather than resuming your studies from the point at which you left.
I want to return to study a different programme to the one I previously studied, but I don’t want to start from the beginning. Is this possible?
This will involve transferring your credits from your previous programme to the new programme of study. The programme convenor for the new programme, will be asked to make an assessment of whether this is possible. Transferring from one programme to another is not guaranteed.
